The frontal system we’ve been tracking for the past few days will finally push east of the WBTV area today, ushering in drier air and a welcome return to sunshine and one last day of mild high temperatures in the middle 60s.
There’s plenty of sunshine in the forecast today, but there’ll also be a gusty breeze to contend with as well. Even so, we should rebound to the upper 50s this afternoon, yet again, well above average for this time of the year.
High pressure has built in behind Tuesday’s rain-maker and will provide wall to wall sunshine today. That all sounds great, but please understand, it will be at least 15° colder today than Tuesday and there will be a noticeable breeze to contend with.
A First Alert remains in effect this Tuesday afternoon as rain showers slowly move from west to east across the WBTV viewing area. The showers are apart of a fairly large frontal boundary stretching from the Deep South to New England.
Scattered showers greet us this morning as a weather disturbance moves across the region. Most of the rain should push out of the area to the northeast by early afternoon, but with plenty of lingering cloud cover, it will be chilly today with high temperatures only rebounding to the lower 50s.
