PM Update: One-day break from rain on Tuesday
More wet stuff to follow
Periods of light rain that began this morning continue into the evening commute as a cold front sweeps through the area. Most spots saw their high for the day occur at midnight, when temperatures were mostly in the mid-50s. Daytime readings have mainly been in the upper 40s and low 50s thanks to plenty of rain and clouds.
Through Tonight: Showers continue into early evening, mainly ending between about 6 and 9 p.m. as they head out to our east. Clearing skies will follow, with low temperatures by morning near freezing in the suburbs to the upper 30s downtown. Wind gusts to near 20 mph early subside as the night wears on.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): We get a one-day respite in the cloudy and rainy weather on Tuesday as temperatures rise to near-normal levels. Look for mostly sunny skies throughout with highs in the low-to-mid 50s. Winds blow around 10 mph from the west. .
Snow? Meteorological winter gets underway tomorrow and some midday models are showing our first potential threat at wintry weather. The 12z GFS and 12z GGEM depict a chance of snow for portions of the area this weekend, on Dec. 5 to be precise. Interestingly enough, Dec. 5 has been quite a prolific snow day this decade with snow falling around here in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2007. It's too early to say if this is a real threat or something that will be off the maps tonight. We'll bring you more if necessary!
