WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-22-20 Autumn officially arrived at 8:30 am today, but the new season will come with warm weather. Southerly flow will continue, out ahead of a weak front to our west. Plenty of sunshine will be around, while winds will be lighter for a change. We will be making a run for 80 degrees, something we have only managed to do just once so far this month.

Southerly flow will again increase with breezes returning. Some high clouds may start to arrive, but the warm air mass will remain in place which will lead to another day with highs around 80. The next front will then make progress to the east, and should be working through at night into early Thursday.
