Not Just A Fiscal Cliff…November 12th, 2012 at 7:49 am by Jeremy Wheeler under Weather
Our temperatures over the weekend were wonderful. Highs were in the upper 60s to low 70s both days. It was beautiful. Today will also be very nice as far as temperatures go. However, we will see a big drop-off (hence the cliff) tomorrow.
This morning we started with patchy thick fog and temps in the 40s and 50s.
The fog will burn off, but later today the clouds will build in. We’ll still manage to rise into the low 70s this afternoon with the help of south-southeast winds at 10-15mph. A stray shower will be possible later today, but the bulk of the rain will hold off until tonight.
Tonight scattered showers develop and the front will move through. Winds will be out of the south and then west with gusts up to 25mph.
Tomorrow the winds will be out of due north, and they will gust up to 30mph. Temperatures will rise to the low 50s early, then they will drop to the low 50s late in the day.
After tomorrow the temps will stay down. Highs will be in the low/mid 50s into the weekend. Lows will mostly be in the 40s, but there will be some 30s. Here we go…back to reality. Relatively speaking we will be well above average today and pretty well below average on Wednesday.
As far as the rain, the scattered showers will continue through tomorrow morning, and then will taper off by tomorrow afternoon. Overall we don’t expect much rain. Maybe up to a half inch at most. A bit more in a few cities. Oh well. At least we aren’t expecting any stormy weather…just windy. Plus, it will be nice Fall weather for a bit.
