PM Update: Staying mild through tomorrow

By Ian Livingston

First cold front arrives Tuesday with shower risk

After some dense fog and a dew-filled start to the day, clouds broke for a pretty glorious one for this time of year. Highs have reached near 60 and into the low 60s across the area as a south wind pumps in warmer and more "humid" air. Enjoy the warmth the rest of today and tomorrow, because cooler air is scheduled to invade as we get to Thanksgiving and beyond.

Through Tonight: Humidity levels are up, so temperatures stay up as well. Look for partly cloudy skies with lows reaching the upper 40s to near 50 across the area. As temperatures near the dew point, some more fog could be an issue late night and early morning. A light breeze may keep that from being as widespread though.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): There should be a fair amount of clouds as a cold front approaches and passes late, but we're still able to warm nicely thanks to a wind from the southwest (shifting west late). Highs should shoot for the mid-60s before a risk of showers arrives during the afternoon and evening. Not a lot of moisture is available, so this should be rather light and hit-or-miss.

Cool photos! National Geographic's annual photo contest is nearing the end-date for submissions (Nov. 30). Boston Globe's "Big Picture" was able to obtain a collection of this years' images, and there are some stunning ones. For weather buffs in particular, be sure to check out this awesome supercell thunderstorm, lightning striking near the Statue of Liberty, and another bolt hitting a building in Hong Kong.

Make that..."possible thunderstorm later today"! [It's already Tuesday!]

No comments on the photos? They are so amazing! It makes me want to go get my camera.

I think one of the best is the moth one (#31). It looks like fractals. That supercell is something else and I want the wave for my desktop background.
