Drizzly and chilly tonight, but sunshine and milder for the last day of astronomical winter tomorrow.

Tonight:  Clouds, drizzle, patchy fog.

Temperatures: 30s and 40s | Wind: South to West 5-10 mph

Tuesday: Becoming partly sunny, breezy and mild.

Highs: Middle to upper 50s | Wind: WNW 10-20 mph

Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy and chilly.

Highs: Mostly cloudy and chilly. | Wind: W 10-20 mph

The bulk of the rain has pushed offshore, but a few showers/ drizzle can still be seen on Live Doppler.  We are socked into pretty cold air, but most areas remain above freezing and will stay above the freezing mark overnight.  Very early tomorrow morning temperatures will climb into the lower 40s and mild air is forecast tomorrow with sunshine, breezy west winds, and highs in the mid to upper 50s. 

Colder air will arrive tomorrow night. High pressure will deliver a string a generally dry and chilly weather from Wednesday straight through the weekend. Average high temperatures are now in the upper 50s. After tomorrow, we will not see temperatures that warm for, at least, another 8 or 9 days. With this kind of forecast, the official arrival of spring at the time of the Vernal Equinox on Wednesday, is not very inspiring.
