PM Update: Showers return, damp weather through Tuesday

Monday was yet another day featuring below normal temperatures and cloudy weather, a trend which our area has been stuck in to begin October. The evening hours aren’t set to improve much, with a chance of showers and rain increasing as the night continues. The culprit will be a weak coastal low pressure, a storm forming just off the coast tonight into early Tuesday. The mid-level atmospheric disturbance over the Northeast will touch off the low pressure tonight, allowing for expanding areas of showers and rain through the Northeast. Temperatures will remain raw as well, in the 40’s and 50’s with a northeast wind. The showers could continue through Tuesday with, yet again, plenty of clouds around the area and temperatures in the 50’s.

Monday Night/Yanks Cast ALDS Game 2: Rain developing from southwest to northeast and becoming steady throughout the area by early Tuesday morning. Another raw evening with temperatures in the 40′s and 50′s and northeast winds around 10 miles per hour. Rain could be steady/moderate for a period of time, especially near the coast. Sweatshirt weather to say the very least — umbrellas are a good idea as well. Yankees play ALDS Game 2 in Baltimore, looking to leave up 2 games to none in the series. Game 2 will have an weather problem opposite of Game 1 — the rain looks to become more likely as the game goes on. The 8pm start time could prove dicey as rain becomes more likely by 9 and 10 pm. We’ll see.

Tuesday: Starts off poor with showers, clouds, and raw weather once again. The system begins to pull away by afternoon, however, so although scattered showers could continue the general weather will improve. Could see a late-day high near 60 in some isolated locations, but it will generally remain in the 50′s once again.

Wednesday: Continuing chance of showers, but much more sun and less steady/continuous rain is expected as the main system lifts off to the north and east of our area. High temperatures more into the lower 60′s can be expected. Definitely a trend towards more pleasant weather by mid-week.
