Jim Barach's Outlook from the Storm Team Weather Center

Few Showers This Evening...Mostly Sunny But Cooler Wednesday A cold front will move through the region tonight which will make for a few showers or even a thunderstorm in the
evening hours. Skies will eventually clear out which will allow the temperature to drop all the way down to a chilly 38
degrees.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny and dry but cool as high pressure moves in over the region. The cool air mass
behind the front will keep the temperature down to a brisk 61 degrees which will feel even cooler with breezy
conditions in the afternoon. Thursday will see a warm front move through the region which will make for partly cloudy
skies along with dry conditions. The warm air behind the front will push the mercury all the way up to a mild 75
degrees. Friday will see the trailing cold front move in to the region. Skies will be mostly cloudy with showers and
storms mainly in the early part of the day. The high temperature will still make it to 78 degrees in the warmer air ahead
of the front.
The weekend will start out with partly cloudy skies along with dry conditions as high pressure moves in behind the
departing cold front. The high temperature will drop to a seasonable 70 degrees in the cooler air that will push in
behind the front. Sunday will be mostly sunny and dry as high pressure strengthens over the region. The high
temperature will warm a bit to 70 degrees in the abundant sunshine.
Monday will be mostly cloudy with some showers as a warm front moves into the region. The high temperature will
make it up to 74 degrees with the warmer air pouring in behind the front. Tuesday will be cloudy with showers and
thunderstorms as the trailing cold front makes its way into the region. The high temperature will rise again to 78
degrees in the warmer air ahead of the front.
A low pressure system will move in behind the departing cold front which will make for cloudy skies along with rain
showers and some much cooler air. The high temperature will drop to a seasonable 70 degrees. Thursday will also be
cloudy with rain showers as the low will still be in place over the region. The high temperature will drop again to 65
degrees. Friday will be mostly cloudy with rain showers as the low will again be the region's dominant weather feature.
The high temperature will drop again to a cool 62 degrees.
