Pleasant October Temperatures
By Justin Drabick
Average temperatures this time of year are in the mid 60s but afternoon highs have been warmer than that.
A dry air mass settled in across the Delaware Valley this weekend and combined with sunshine, highs made it to 70 degrees both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will continue to remain a few degrees above average through mid-week.
A weak cold front will slide through the region tonight but that air mass behind the front will not be much cooler. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 60s and some warm spots could hit 70 again. An approaching storm system from the south will push some warmer air into the Delaware Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Highs will be in the lower 70s with some sun on Tuesday, but break out the umbrellas again for Wednesday as more rain arrives. Behind that storm system, temperatures take a dive below average for the end of the week with highs in the low 60s.
Overnight lows have not been terribly cold this October. We average in the upper 40s this time of year for our low but expect lows to remain in the 50s for the next several days. Behind Wednesday’s storms system, lows will dip down into the 40s but still no threat of frost.
