SYNOPSIS  Today be a pleasant start to October, with a mixture of clouds and sunshine.  A cool morning will give way to a milder afternoon, with highs in the mid-upper 60s.  Winds will be southeast at 5-10 mph.

Thursday will become very wet and a little warmer.  Thursday morning will be dry, especially southeast of Kent County, but showers and a possible thunderstorm will develop from NW to SE across the area by mid-late Thursday afternoon.  Rain is likely Thursday night and there could be a brief thunderstorm.  Many areas will pick up at least 1/2 inch of rain.  It will get windy Thursday night.

Friday, we could see a few showers with tumbling temperatures.  We’ll likely be in the low-mid 60s at Daybreak and in the low 50s by late afternoon. It will be a windy and chilly night for Football Frenzy!

WEEKEND WEATHER    The weekend will be sharply colder, with a chance of a scattered light showers, including some lake-effect rain showers.  Temperatures over the weekend will be mainly in the low-mid 50s. Saturday morning will be especially chilly, with temperatures in the mid 40s and a stiff west wind.  Cool weather will continue into early next week.  The last time we had a stretch of 50’s was more than four months ago, this past May.
