Cool, damp and dreary tonight but more rain in the forecast for the next couple of days.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Patchy Fog

Lows: 60s | Wind: Light Southerly

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy, PM Showers

Highs: Mid to Upper 70s | Wind: SSE 4-8 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Cloudy, PM Storms Possible

Highs: Near 80 | Wind: S 5-10 m.p.h.

The area of light rain has passed well east of the area with no more rain expected through tonight. There could be areas of fog later tonight and overnight. For the next few days, we will be under the combined effects of an area of high pressure over the ocean and an area of low pressure over the Great Lakes. The circulation from these systems will provide a nearly continuous flow of warm and moist air across our region with southerly winds.

With a slow increase in moisture levels and surface temperatures AND the approach of a cold front on Friday, the daily chances of showers and thunderstorms will increase each day. Friday appears to be the day with the highest probability of rain and some of that rain could be heavy resulting from more numerous showers and thunderstorms. Clearing skies will develop during the weekend.
