Mid-Atlantic – The Week Ahead (Oct 31-Nov 7)

Winds will begin to subside tonight as we start to get cooler again. Temperatures this week will generally be below average, which is likely a trend that will prevail over the next couple of months, with occasional warm shots between extended periods of cooler weather.
