It’s shaping up to be a fall-like night with relatively mild temperatures in the 40s and 50s across the region. Some clouds will blend in as cooler air moves in from the Northwest.

A late-afternoon warm-up is in store, with a high of 50° expected, followed by some clearing as a cold front approaches from the southwest overnight. Winds gusting to 15-25 MPH will be needed to keep temperatures above freezing by 9 AM.

Monday will be even cooler, with much colder air lifting in from the east late morning. Temperatures will be just 20° or so ahead of a cold front setting off showers by 9 AM. Gusty winds are forecast, along with temperatures in the teens or 20s.

The chilly temperatures continue through the week as the first frost is predicted for the weekend. In some places, it could be as cold as zero°.

The Wednesday snow is probable for a few locations, though what amounts are unknown.

A cold snap will be possible for the start of October, with plenty of snow possible in a few areas.
