Early October: No Cold Air In Sight... Yet

September 28, 2012; 6:34 AM ET

Friday 9 a.m.

The video explores how the weather should unfold this weekend and early next week. While longer-range models show cold air building in Canada and moving south later next week, no snow or freezing weather is in the forecast for the Northeast for the next 10 days.

Nadine has been a fixture over various parts of the open Atlantic for weeks now, and it is likely to still be on the map at the start of October.

Note how the satellite coverage ends over the eastern Atlantic. The satellite that had monitored much of the U.S. and Atlantic Ocean malfunctioned earlier this week. The geostationary satellite that had been monitoring the western U.S. and the Pacific was moved east to make up for some of the lost coverage, but you can see the eastern edge of its picture taking ability from its newest location.
