Storm System Transitions Stateline to Fall Conditions

The storm system that has been bringing persistent rain, cloudy skies and cool temperatures to our area is now on it's 6th day!  The storm is a cut-off low, meaning it is cut-off from the jet stream, the steering winds that normally guide a storm on a track and move it along.  Without a rudder the storm just spins around and the direction and speed of movement is difficult to predict! 

This system really changed our weather from very warm temperatures (a high of 86 degrees on Sunday, September 25th!) to below normal temperatures for our entire week, almost as if within one week we moved into fall.  The storm will finally start to push to the east on Sunday and we will start to dry out and have some peaks at the sun. 

Next week will start out on a warmer note with Monday through Wednesday high temperatures moving a little above our normal high of 69 degrees.  Our next storm system will enter the Stateline region late Wednesday evening bringing unsettled weather through Friday and again ushering in some cooler temperatures that will take us below normal.  Have a great Sunday!
