Jova makes landfall
Hurricane Jova moved inland overnight near Chamela, Mexico as a category 2 storm. Strong winds in excess of 100mph and heavy rain are spreading inland along the southwest Pacific coast of Mexico. Jova will continue to produce very heavy rain today (from 6-12 inches) as the system moves inland and interacts with the mountains of Mexico.
Our weather remains very pleasant for mid-October. Another mild, dry day is expected across the region before low pressure moves north from the Carolina's and brings an increased threat for rain. Clouds will be thickening an lowering all day with rain spreading from south to north across New York and Vermont and into Quebec by early Thursday morning. We will have a break in the action late Thursday before another front and low pressure area from Ontario bring showers and thunderstorms for Friday. The weekend looks showery and windy with temperatures closer to normal.
