Mike Linden's Forecast | Nate likely to bring heavy rain to NEPA on Monday
The first weekend of October is here and the warmer than normal temperatures look likely to continue. If you're heading out to any area football games tonight it's primed to be quite nice evening. There will be a slight muggy feel in the air but the low 60s will feel pretty nice this evening.
The weekend looks likely to feature highs in the upper 70s, low 80s under mostly cloudy skies. Saturday looks like the sunnier of the two days but both will still see showers at some point; Saturday late and Sunday afternoon.
Monday is when Tropical Depression Nate arrives. Most computer models are in agreement that NEPA looks likely to see a lot of rain on Monday; between 2" and 2.5". This rain will be much more beneficial to the region than it could have been had we already been wet. With the peak fall foliage colors coming in the next two weeks, a little rain will help things move along nicely (plus the rain will help the colors be more vibrant too).
The next chance for "normal" temperatures (mid to low 60s) looks to be the end of the work week next week.
