(Edited for updated GFS long range forecast)

We had a windchill below 0C this morning. BRR!

That said, it’s shaping up to be another wonderful week of sunny warm fall weather. At or near 20C everyday from now through Saturday. After Saturday, as Bill pointed out this morning in the comments… and as I’ve seen mentioned in other blogs, things are going to change!

The Long Long range forecast (next Sunday to next Friday) calls for 130mm of rain and bottoming out at 993mb pressure which could mean some wind too.

We’ll see, the same model is apparently predicting snow for West Virginia around the same time as a big Arctic high builds into the middle of the continent.

Enjoy the sun!
