One last chilly day is forecast across the area. Warmth should finally return to the region Thursday. However, temperatures will only top out in the upper 40s today, despite mostly sunny skies. This is my question to winter:
Overnight lows will drop only into the mid 30s, which is much warmer than the mid 20s we’re experiencing at 7 AM this morning. The warmer temperatures will be thanks to high pressure moving to the south of us and winds shifting out of the south.
Southerly flow is expected to intensify Thursday as temperatures warm into the mid 60s under partly cloudy skies. Clouds will increase throughout the day as a surface front approaches the region from the north.
A few showers will develop overnight as the surface front moves through the area. These will increase in coverage as we move into Friday morning. Lows will drop into the low 40s.
Rain is expected to continue on Friday. Rain and easterly winds will likely result in highs in the mid 50s. Making for more of a “bleh” end to the workweek.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
