High pressure along the Appalachians is responsible for considerable sunshine and gusty southwesterly winds that nudged temperatures into the low 80s under mainly sunny skies, 10-15 degrees above normal for early October.

Monday will be breezy and balmy, with readings topping 80 degrees. A weak cold front will bring some clouds Monday evening through early Tuesday, with a spotty shower or two, followed by afternoon clearing and slightly cooler and drier air midweek.

Unseasonably warm and dry conditions will continue until a stronger cold front arrives at the end of the week with scattered showers late Thursday and Friday, ending early in the weekend with seasonably cool weather.
