Dreary conditions, which took control of the areas weather on Monday into early Tuesday, will give way to the return to sun and seasonable temperatures by later on Tuesday. After a cloudy and potentially drizzly start to the day, high pressure to the north and east will begin to strengthen and nudge towards the area as an atmospheric disturbance aloft weakens. As this occurs, clearing is expected to push into the area from the east. Areas that see the sun on Tuesday will be able to warm up into the 60’s despite a light east/southeasterly wind.

The warmth will continue through the middle of the week as the disturbance aloft dissipates completely. High temperatures could warm into the mid 60’s to near 70 by Wednesday and Thursday. Although coastal areas will remain a bit cooler, the seasonable temperatures will be welcomed after the showery start that the week featured. By late week, however, another disturbance moving down the east coast from the north (bizarre, we know) could bring in another backdoor cold front and strengthen the east winds off the cool waters. This could mean a return to cooler temperatures and more clouds.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Highs in the upper 50′s to lower 60′s. Southeast winds around 15 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation 20 percent.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy with a low in the mid to upper 40s. Southeast winds around 15 miles per hour.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 60′s. Southeast winds around 10 miles per hour.

Thursday: Partly cloudy. High in the upper 60’s. Light southeast winds.
