FORECAST IN DETAIL
Well, we're stuck in a somewhat unpleasant pattern for the time being I'm sorry to say. A stationary front to our south isn't going anywhere soon and easterly flow means gray, drizzly, and cool for the next several days. Fear not! There is hope on the horizon as by midweek we could see another brief taste of spring warmth.
Today (Sunday): Gray, damp conditions continue today, completing a rather dreary weekend. Rain should be more widespread in the early to midday hours but a light easterly wind will keep chances for drizzle throughout the day. There could be some peeks of sun in the northern areas during the afternoon hours but temperatures will remain cool. Highs will stay in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: High
Tonight: No real changes occur overnight save for dropping temperatures. Our chances for rain will drop as well but patchy drizzle should stick around. Cloudy skies will be the norm and overnight lows will drop into the mid-to-upper 30s. Winds from the northeast will blow at 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through your midweek...
Tomorrow (Monday): While we'll begin to warm slightly tomorrow, you probably won't notice it as the air stays damp and you probably won't want to be out in it. Drizzly conditions continue and by afternoon we'll see a chance for a passing shower or two. Highs should manage to crack 50 in areas that see some dry time. Easterly winds will continue at around 5 mph.
Tomorrow Night: We'll again see generally gray and misty conditions as our stagnant maritime pattern persists. Expect overnight lows in the upper 30s and easterly winds near 5 mph.
Tuesday we finally see our luck begin to change. However, drying out will probably be a slow process. We'll fall in between battling systems as high pressure to our north and west battles low pressure to our southeast. We should at least see occasional breaks in the clouds but I have to keep the chance of drizzle in the forecast during the morning. Afternoon highs continue their upward trend, topping out in the low-to-mid 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday we finally break out of this funk! High pressure takes control and brings us the nicest day of the week. Mostly sunny skies and temperatures closing in on 70 will be a welcome reprieve from the damp early week. Confidence: Medium-High
