Forecast for Tuesday, October 8, 2013

A strong cold front is currently passing through and this front will move offshore tonight. The threat of severe weather has passed. Poor instability limited the severe weather today. Numerous showers will impact our region through early this evening, with clearing expected later tonight into the overnight hours. Wind gusts to 25 MPH are possible at times.

High pressure will build across our region on Tuesday.  Mostly clear skies and comfortable temperatures are expected.

The area of high pressure will begin to shift offshore on Wednesday. The change in position of the area of high pressure will promote an onshore flow for the rest of the week. This may produce a good amount of cloudiness and it could also result in some occasional fog and showers. Meanwhile, a broad area of low pressure will attempt to move northward from the South. This feature may eventually throw a period of steady rain our way late in the week. It is possible that there will be more clouds and precipitation at the coast vs. well inland. There is currently low confidence with regards to the exact timing of the precipitation and where it exactly will fall.  Regardless, confidence is increasing that Thursday through Saturday will be breezy.
