WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-28-20 The final few days of September will come with breezy and cool conditions, likely bringing the sweatshirts and jackets out at times. A large upper trough continues to expand southward and will be a mainstay across our part of the country all week. Today will remain mostly gray with plenty of clouds while scattered showers this afternoon. Northwest breezes will also be around, making it feel cooler while afternoon highs only reach the upper 50′s. Tuesday will likely be a similar day with clouds and perhaps a bit of sun at times, while an isolated shower is possible in the afternoon. The next surface trough will be up to our northwest, shifting winds temporarily to the west and southwest while we reach towards 60. This is how we will likely finish up the month on Wednesday when we actually may have a better chance to see a bit more sunshine. A stray late day shower can’t be ruled out, but it should remain largely dry while we again top out around 60.
