TONIGHT: Scattered Showers. Lo 42. Winds: Light. Around 1″ Storm Total Rain. Areas of Fog.

TUESDAY: Colder and Breezy. Hi 41.
Today was a good old-fashioned rainy day. Steady rain to even periods of heavy rain lasted all during the daylight hours until this evening. The bulk of the moisture has moved on from the Commonwealth, but the trailing cold front has still not cleared the region yet. Scattered light showers will be around tonight and early tomorrow morning along with fog and drizzle. An additional quarter inch of rain is possible as a result of the lingering showers, on top of the inch of rain that has already fallen. The light rain will lower visibility for any late night or early Monday morning traveling. The rain should begin to clear after 9 AM Monday, but even as the sun returns through the clouds any warm-up will be relatively brief.
Much colder air then flows in late Monday which will also get the winds cranking. Gusts of 30-35 mph will common Monday night before relaxing a bit Tuesday as high pressure builds. Highs will be around 5 degrees below average Tuesday before milder air returns for Wednesday.
For the end of the week, the trend has been for an upper level low to slow down and spin over the northeast US, which will keep us seasonably cool and on the breezy side. This type of pattern does lead to suppression however which means any Gulf systems wouldn’t have much of a shot coming north to affect us. Expect highs in the 40s and overnight lows around 30 as we close out the work week.
