Another Warm but Cloudy Day Expected

1/13/13  9:44 am

1-13Fog will once again be a problem throughout this morning, as plenty of moisture remains trapped at the surface.  As such, temperatures may be slightly cooler than yesterday (although still very warm for this time of year).  With cloudy skies expected for much of the day, the fog will likely be slow to lift.  High temperatures will rise into the upper 40’s to lower 50’s by mid afternoon, with overnight lows mild in the lower to upper 40’s across the region.  A warm front will start to lift northward tonight, so scattered rain showers will also reenter the picture by late this evening.

Showers will likely stick around for much of tomorrow morning, before drier conditions and scattered cloud cover take over.  Monday’s temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50’s for highs and dropping into the upper 20’s to mid 30’s for lows.  Locations over the interior can expect slightly cooler conditions with highs in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s and lows in the mid to upper 20’s.  The cold front will really start to take effect by Tuesday when you’ll notice a wind shift to the north, vastly cooler temperatures, and even some sleet in certain locations!  Most areas will just see some scattered cloud cover, but southerly locations have a shot at seeing a mix of rain and sleet through overnight Tuesday.  Temperatures will plummet into the upper 30’s to lower 40’s for highs and the upper 20’s to lower 30’s for lows.

High pressure will take over by Wednesday, with dry and tranquil conditions, and should last all the way into the weekend.  Temperatures will also regulate back into a more normal wintry range.
