WEATHER BUG


< irsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The weekend "wedge" of clouds
and cool temperatures will continue
through Tuesday. Temperatures remain in
the mid 40s today. Clouds, light
showers, areas of drizzle and patchy
fog will continue Monday, Monday night
and Tuesday. The big difference in the
day-to-day forecast will be a steady
warming trend as a warm front lifts to


our north. Highs Monday are expected in
the upper 40s. Lows Monday night will
stay steady. Tuesday, while still
dreary, highs will rocket to near 70.


Clearing is expected Wednesday with
cooler temperatures in the upper 50s.


Another wedge will attempt to develop
Thursday and Friday, but this one
should be weaker and less impressive.
Generally, a few showers are forecast
late Thursday and Friday. With any
luck, we'll dry out in time for the
weekend.


MONDAY: Light showers, drizzle & fog.
High: 48


Have a great week! Meteorologist Leo
