We made it everybody! It’s October now! Well, the forecasts for October anyways. That means today is your first Pumpkin Spice Forecast! What? Everything is it seems. Okay okay, I’ll just stick with normal-flavored forecasts.
At 1154pm EDT, the temperature at Pittsfield, MA was 48 degrees with fog/mist being reported. A cutoff low pressure system continues to camp out over the Ohio Valley tonight, with a weak low found off the New England coastline as well. Due to a high pressure system entrenched over southeast Canada, this cutoff low is pretty much stuck where it is for the next couple of days. This broad southerly fetch is continuing to pump moisture over the Eastern Seaboard, which is keeping scattered showers in much of the region throughout the weekend. High pressure finally breaks down by late Sunday allowing the system to finally start pushing eastward, with conditions improving for Monday. Not the greatest way to start off the month, but at least it’s not snowing!
