Afternoon Clearing and Mild

This afternoon is fairly mild with partial clearing. It will turn cooler tonight and stays rather raw for your Tuesday, along with occasional drizzle or light rain. Steadier rain and a surge of milder air arrives Wednesday, mostly PM, before clearing occurs on Thursday, along with a possible conclusion to the rain as a brief period of snow or wintry mix. Thursday will be much colder before moderation commences by end of of the week.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is moving across the area this morning, and will herald a brief period of dry weather this afternoon through early tonight. High pressure that’s wedging-in behind the front tonight and Tuesday will promote cool/raw conditions tonight and Tuesday along with periods of light rain or drizzle after midnight.

Steady or rising temperatures Tuesday night will lead to a mild but rainy Wednesday PM as a strong cold front pushes across the region. Rain could end as a brief period of snow or wintry mix Thursday morning before skies clear and we have a temporary chill-down that will last through Friday.

Thereafter, we embark on a moderating trend that will take us into next weekend. In addition, with high pressure appearing to maintain control for a few days, the weather looks mostly clear and rather nice through Saturday. Moisture returning by late in the weekend could lead to better rain chances by Sunday, however.
