Breezy, mild day Tuesday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Showers will move in this evening ahead of a cold front. They will continue, scattered through the area until around midnight or so. I only expect a trace up to .25” at most in spots.  Winds will pick up out of the south anywhere from 10 to 15 mph with gust to 25mph. The front pushes through later tonight. The air mass behind the front is still mild, and with the clouds, lows will only drop to the upper 40s to low 50s.

Tomorrow, with the sun breaking through the clouds, we’ll see temps jump early to the mid 50s. Actual high temps will likely be just after midnight. Winds remain breezy through the late afternoon out of the west about 10 to 20mph. High pressure builds in tomorrow night bringing mostly clear skies and calmer winds. Fog will also return for Wednesday morning. Lows will be a bit cooler in the upper 30s but with more sunshine, highs will again climb to the mid and upper 50s.

Our next system swings through Thursday bringing showers. Temperatures once again hit the 50s. Changes arrive as a deepening trough settles across the east coast Friday. Highs Friday, will be chillier in the mid 40s under mostly cloudy skies, and I can’t rule out a few flurries, especially in our northwest counties. Heading into the weekend, Arctic air spills in and brings our mild stretch of weather to an end, as even chillier air settles across the area. Lows will plummet to the 20s, while high temperatures remain in the 30’s. I still expect skies to be mostly cloudy Saturday, as progressive energy rotates through. This disturbance may even be enough to spit out some flurries for us too. Expect more sunshine for Sunday and Monday, as high pressure builds in at the surface, and the trough exits, loosening its grip on us.
