A warm front brought warm air to the region on Friday, October
23rd. Temperatures soared to 80 degrees at Rome Griffiss Airport. This
is the new record high for the date, beating the old record of 77
degrees set back in 1939. This warm air doesn't stick around.
A cold front moves through Saturday morning bringing rain and cooler
air behind it. The rain ends before lunchtime, but temperatures will
decrease throughout the day. Starting in the mid 50s in the morning,
then dropping into the 40s by the afternoon. Overnight, lows reach the
upper 20s with a widespread hard frost. This is because a cold north
wind continues and cloud cover decreases to mostly clear skies.
The cool air sticks around throughout the weekend. Highs only reach
the lower 50s on Sunday with mostly sunny skies. High pressure brings
dry air to the region, but a cold north wind continues. Overnight,
frost is possible again with lows in the lower to mid 30s.
It stays cool for the rest of the week. Highs will be in the lower 50s
with lows in the mid to upper 30s. Towards the end of the week it gets
even cooler. Highs only reach the mid to upper 40s.
