Showery Later On, Cooling Late


A cool front will slide through the region over the course of the morning hours, bringing with it a period of showers that will pass through. Most locations pick up less than a quarter inch of rain, many will pick up just a tenth or two at most.

Showers will taper off from west to east during the early afternoon hours.

Our mild start this morning will cool in the afternoon with the passage of the front, with northwest breezes picking up at 12-18 miles per hour, perhaps gusting higher than that in the afternoon hours.  After midday highs in the lower 60's for the city and points southeast, and upper 50's northwest, we should see temperatures drop back a few degrees in the afternoon hours. Most places will ease back into the 55-60 range by dinner as west and northwest winds take over. Winds could gust over 25, perhaps even 30 miles per hour in spots.
