Another bout of heavy rain today but the sunshine will return Tuesday along with milder air the rest of the week.

Tonight:
Mostly Cloudy, Patchy Fog and Drizzle 
Temperatures: 50s
Wind: SW 5-10 m.p.h.
Tuesday:
Becoming Partly Cloudy, Breezy
Highs: Low to Mid 60s
Wind: WNW 10-20 m.p.h.
Wednesday:
Partly Cloudy, Passing Sprinkle, Breezy
Highs: Low 60s
Wind: NW 10-20 m.p.h.

We are socked in…under an unseasonably chilly air mass. The rain ended this afternoon but widespread drizzle and areas of fog will continue tonight. Later tonight a warm front will slowly move northward towards our area. That front winds and turns it’s way westward to a parent low pressure center moving northeastward through the Ohio Valley. With the approach of the warm front, drizzle and fog will be likely and a few additional showers cannot be ruled out.

By tomorrow morning, both the low pressure center and the warm front are expected to be north of our area. Northwesterly wind s will be developing and become quite breezy through the day. This will bring clearing skies and much milder temperatures back to the region. Other than a passing sprinkle on Wednesday, we expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the lower 60s.
