If there's ever been better October weather, I can't remember it. Isolated frosty spots are possible Friday morning. Otherwise, nice weather rules through the weekend. Friday will be the warmest day. Add a few clouds Saturday afternoon. Skies become mostly cloudy Sunday night. Monday looks quite rainy.

"Big bubble, no trouble." is the weather adage for this week's weather. High pressure rules the East and will through Sunday. Temperatures will be a couple degrees warmer Friday. Add some high clouds late Saturday.
Pleasant weather ends Monday ahead of a front that moves through from the west Tuesday. Skies become cloudy Sunday night. We get a generous draw of moisture from the Gulf making Monday a very rainy day. Showers continue into Tuesday as the front moves through.
Wednesday, low pressure in the Great Lakes combined with Canadian high pressure arriving from the northwest results in a blustery, much colder day.
