PM Update: Another glorious evening

By Ian Livingston

Rain, mainly light, arrives tomorrow afternoon

April continued to produce today as mostly sunny skies led to another nice one with highs near 70 across the area. Light north and east winds behind a weak cold front that has sagged to our south have not been much of an issue. The front will help to set a path for a system on course to swing through during the second half of tomorrow. Fortunately for fair-weather fans, it's a quick mover and pleasantly cool conditions return on Wednesday.

Through Tonight: We start off the evening mostly clear with temperatures falling through the 60s into sunset. Overnight, clouds will tend to increase toward partly cloudy by sunrise. Lows fall to near 40 in the coldest suburbs to the upper 40s downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Clouds continue to increase in the morning ahead of the approaching storm system. By midday, showers should be approaching or moving into the area from the northwest. The best chance for rain comes during the late afternoon and evening with some lighter activity perhaps lasting into the night. Temperatures that peak in the upper 50s to lower 60s will fall back during the rain.

WV fire ban: West Virginia instituted a ban on outdoor fires this past weekend in response to a significant increase in wild land fires since April 1. The recent warm weather and dry conditions, plus the fact that "green up" has not fully completed, have aided in fire development. Cooler weather and some rain in the forecast may ease concerns a bit.
