Morning fog and mist gives way to sunshine and a breezy & milder day…but the warm-up will be brief.

TODAY: AM Fog, Drizzle to Afternoon Sunshine, Breezy & Mild
Highs: Mid to Upper 50s
Wind: W 10-20+ mph

OVERNIGHT: Mainly Clear & Cold
Lows: 28º-34°
Wind: NW 5-10

TOMORROW: Becoming Partly Cloudy, Cooler, Nighttime Flurry Snow Shower
Highs: Near 50°
Wind: WNW 8-12 mph


Early Morning Limited Visibilities

Warmer air, on the heels of a westerly breeze, should erode morning clouds and dampness and provide a nice-afternoon warm-up under good sunshine. Highs today should peak in the mid and possible upper 50s. Overnight, under clear skies and with lighter winds, our lows once again slip back into the 20s and 30s.

With the start of spring just 24 hours away, one would think we are the cusp of a weather pattern change, but one would be wrong. Our extended outlook calls for colder air. High pressure will deliver a string of generally dry and chilly weather from Wednesday straight through the weekend. Average high temperatures are now in the upper 50s but we will struggle to get out of the 40s! We could even see a flurry or snow shower tomorrow night as some energy slips by! So don't put away the winter clothes just yet! Have a great day!
