Morning fog/drizzle, and much cooler this week

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  You may start the week with some light drizzles and patchy fog this morning.  By this afternoon we will still be overcast, but the rain chance will slip to about 20%.  We will start to see a spell of cooler and drier air move later today, also.  We are in the upper 40s and low 50s this morning.  I expect our high to reach about 54 this afternoon, five degrees cooler than yesterday.

That trend will continue tonight.  Lows will drop into upper 30s by Tuesday morning.  Skies will clear out Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and a high of 49.

Wednesday we will just call it cold and dry.  Lows will start the day in the upper 20s, and we will manage to eek out a high only in the mid 40s.  Okay, it's not Buffalo cold, but it will certainly have you reaching for a coat.  New Years Day will be about the same with some clouds building late in the day.

Friday will also by chilly with a low of 32, and a high of only 43.  An area of low pressure passing to the south could bring us some showers Friday, but we will have to watch it over the next couple of days to get a better idea of the exact track.  It could pass too far to the south and give us no rain.  It could drift a little further north and bring us a soaker.

I think our chance for rain over the weekend looks good.  Temps will be more mild with highs in the low 50s, and lows in the 40s.  A front approaching will bring likely rain to the area late Saturday and through the day Sunday.
