A Few Scattered Showers Today…Warmth Ahead

Some patchy fog will quickly lift this morning as winds begin to increase out of the northeast and a few areas of drizzle are likely as well. An area of low pressure continues to spin overhead providing enough instability to generate more showers as we head into the afternoon hours.

The overall pattern features the jet stream remaining south of the area keeping us cool and unsettled. Off to the west a ridge of high pressure is providing warmer and dry conditions in the western U.S.

The low will continue to slowly push eastward and warmer air will begin to nudge back into the area as early as our Thursday with dry conditions moving in. It also appears we’ll remain dry for the majority of Friday, too with temperatures warming well into the 70s.

Looking for temperatures in the lower 60s today with a few scattered showers. Winds will be picking up later this afternoon to around 15 miles per hour so keep the jacket handy along with the umbrella.

The extended forecast shows big improvements beginning tomorrow as we get rid of the rain chances and warm temperatures well into the 70s. Rain chances will return for the upcoming weekend however it will not be raining the entire day, just expect a few scattered showers and storms at times, not enough to cancel any plans however at this time.
