October 16th Weather Discussion

Light rain this morning will become more intense before noon and then taper off to showers this afternoon. Another 6-9mm of rain is likely by the time it ends later this afternoon as a low-pressure system in Lake Huron moves further east. The gusty northeast winds this morning will become more northerly by noon and possibly northwest later this afternoon as that system moves away from the region.  Afternoon temperatures of 8°C will fall to near 3°C overnight with some breaks in the cloud cover.

Tomorrow morning will feel like 0°C thanks to the cool temperatures and gusty north winds. I'm not convinced we will see sunny skies for all of tomorrow, but instead, partly cloudy skies should develop with daytime heating as daytime highs hit 9°C.  Clearing skies overnight will allow for overnight temperatures to fall to near the freezing mark.

The long-range outlook shows a high-pressure ridge moving through the region to bring sunnier skies from Friday through to Sunday, along with a warming trend.  By Saturday, temperatures should climb to near average values for this time of year at 12°C and possibly even higher into Sunday.  The next chance of rain is a 50/50 chance on Saturday evening. More rain also arrives late Monday into Tuesday when the next significant storm system hits the Great Lakes. 

Colder than normal temperatures return by the middle of next week behind the next storm system.  Our first real chances of snow could develop behind this system for next weekend.
