The drier, cooler inland air mass has tapped into another northerly breeze to keep thermometers below average for the rest of the work week.
Today and Tonight: A noticeably cooler day is ahead. Wednesday high temperatures will likely fail to reach 60° with most locations peaking in the upper 50s. A few more clouds may be present as well-especially later. An increase in cloud cover is expected overnight which will actually prevent the bottom from falling out on thermometers. Most locations will stop in the middle to upper 30s.
Looking Ahead: More clouds than sun should carry through the Thursday to Friday time period. As a result, afternoon temperatures will only just make it into the low 60s while overnight lows won't fall as much, hanging around 40°. Mostly clear skies will then return for the weekend with highs going back above average to near 70°.
Forecast Discussion: We now will monitor the behavior of a few shortwave impulses sliding through the overall longwave wind flow in the upper levels. The track and extent of these impulses will help determine how much cloud coverage we see over the next few days. Additionally, a temperature inversion setting up with some moisture return into the mid-levels lends to the likelihood of a stubborn altostratus cloud deck developing by Thursday and possibly lasting through part of Friday. Regardless, no precipitation is expected through week's end. By the weekend a high pressure system parked near Tennessee will open up skies and allow east southeasterly winds to bring a bit warmer and milder air into the region. The next storm system will develop in Texas and bring a cold front with showers and thunderstorms into the area on Monday.
