A taste of fall in August?

2010-08-05 17:11:25.000 – Brian Clark,  Observer and Meteorologist


The forecast for tomorrow night is looking rather interesting. Between now and then several cold fronts will sweep through the region, with the strongest coming through tomorrow evening. Behind the front, Canadian High Pressure will build in and winds will shift to a cold northwesterly direction. Because of this, temperatures will plummet, reaching a low just at or below the freezing mark late tomorrow night.

Of course, this means there is a chance that we could see some glaze ice forming. Whether that actually happens or not will be ultimately determined by whether the summit stays in the clouds. While the building high will bring colder air onto the summits, it will also bring drier air as well.

We’ll see, and naturally we’ll be posting pictures here, and on our page on Facebook if we do end up getting a taste of fall in August!
