The southeast wind finally picked up overnight, and cleared out the incredibly dense fog that was with us all day on Monday. That SE wind has also helped pull temperatures into the upper 40s and low 50s across the valley… a big improvement from the chilly temps of Monday.
But for our Tuesday, we are going to hold onto the clouds and areas of drizzle, as a strong frontal boundary approaches from the west. Cloudy skies, areas of drizzle and a few spotty showers should be the story as we head into the afternoon. The rain showers should be rather light and spotty until we approach sunset. Temperatures this afternoon should hold in the low to mid 50s across the region… roughly 10 degrees above average.
As we near sunset, the frontal boundary should begin to spread more numerous and steadier rain showers into the region. A period of light to moderate rain is expected after sunset, and that should last through midnight… before tapering off before sunrise on Wednesday. When all is said and done… half an inch, to 3/4 of an inch of rain is possible.
