Stepping Back Towards The Norm

After yesterday's toasty high of 63 degrees a weak cool front has slipped on through the region and will bring a sense of normalcy to the weather for the next few days.  While temperatures will still be mild compared to the average high of 40 for this time of the year, records aren't likely as the ridge of high pressure that perked up in the Midwest and West has fully been squashed with a more "zonal" pattern for a couple of days.

All in all, today's a nice day as far as January is concerned...just a good bit cooler.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures that will top out in the middle and upper 40's for most, near 50 or so in South Jersey and Delaware.   West to northwest breezes will average around 10 mph, occasionally nudging in gusts to 20 mph.   The breeze will add a touch of chill to the atmosphere but it's hardly a brutal day on tap by any stretch as we will get a decent amount of sun at times through the day.
