10/7: Showers Today; Wed/Thurs Look Nice

10/7 Weather History
On this day in 1941, Harrisonburg climbed up to 94, marking the hottest temperature ever recorded here in October.  It was the final day of a 3 day stretch of temperatures breaking 90 degrees.  The extended heat-wave actually caused DC’s cherry trees to bloom.  Here is an article from the Australian Associated Press mentioning the event:

Tuesday 10/7 Forecast Discussion
A grey, showery day is on tap as another upper level disturbance swings through the area. Similar to yesterday, the bulk of the heaviest rains will remain to our west across parts of West Virginia. A few of these will still manage to work their way across the mountains bringing the Valley some much needed rain. The trough over the east will relax a bit by Wednesday bringing a few days of warm, pleasant weather. Some leftover moisture associated with Tropical Storm Simon currently out in the Eastern Pacific will return rain chances by Friday and possibly lingering around into the weekend.
