Today and Tonight: Once again we can expect a partly sunny sky. Rain shower chances should fall to almost nil except in coastal locations. With a weakening and dissipating cold front strolling through the region, temperatures will go a touch lower than Monday, but remain above average for December, in the lower 70s. Overnight, it will be partly cloudy with some fog by morning and lows in the low 50s.

Looking Ahead: More of the same is ahead for Wednesday and Thursday. While sky conditions and temperatures won't change on Friday, we could potentially grab a shower or two.

Forecast Discussion: The peaks and valleys of the November jet stream across the United States have leveled off into an unremarkable zonal flow. This means outbursts of cold air are trapped close to Canada and major storm systems are shunted north. In fact, this week only one shortwave, or disturbance in the upper levels, will track trough the jet stream potentially bringing another small chance for spotty showers Thursday into Saturday. Reiterating the repetitive weather expected in a zonal pattern, skies will generally remain partly sunny with highs in the middle 70s and lows in the middle 50s.
