Thanks to a thick layer of clouds that moved in last night temperatures this morning were milder, with all of us avoiding another freeze. We stayed under mostly cloudy conditions throughout the day but thanks to a breezy southeast wind pumping in warmer air our temperatures were a bit warmer this afternoon as well, topping out in the upper 60s and low 70s. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


The steady southeast wind has also helped increase moisture across the region. This should be the case over the next couple of days but the big question now is will there be enough lift to interact with this moisture and produce some rain. A weak cold front will move through tomorrow afternoon and evening and then stall to the south of us. Along this boundary we could see some showers and storms form but unfortunately it looks like that will be to the south of us. At the beginning of next week there are more signs for rain but at that point it looks like the dryline will come into play and push all moisture to the east, or at least our eastern counties. This is something we will continue to monitor over the next several days.

Temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s each afternoon until our next cold front moves through sometime during the middle of next week. It currently does not look like this front will be strong enough to give us another freeze but anything could change between now and then so stay tuned! 

I hope you had a great day and be sure to join us tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have an updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
