April 30th, 2013 Forecast

Today's showers and damp weather continue into tonight as the disturbance responsible for it slowly moves through.  This, combined with an onshore flow, will join forces to provide a cool regime for at least one more day before drier weather slowly filters on in.

Showers and drizzle tonight will be a bit more numerous closer to the Shore, as well as to the city's south.  Expect lows tonight to range from the upper 40's to low 50's in most locations.  Winds will slacken off a bit overnight but generally maintain an easterly component.

Tuesday features more showers, especially in the morning, before some potential brightening of the skies later in the day.  Not everyone sees sunshine but things may get a bit less dreary in the afternoon around the region.  Expect highs tomorrow to range from the mid 50's at the Shore (where clouds hold most firm) to the lower 60's elsewhere.

We've been keeping a close eye on a cutoff low that modeling a couple of days ago had indicated would stall out over the Southeast or Mid Atlantic.  That cutoff low is now poised to be parked over the Midwest instead, which yields us a sunnier outlook for the balance of the week (for now). We'll talk about a still somewhat uncertain forecast for the balance of the week and how we could see some unsettled weather late in the week...just not from the system we were thinking.  For now, the forecast reflects more sun than not but we're keeping an eye on the Atlantic in case things change...we'll outline those possibilities this evening.
