It was certainly a day to dig deep into the closet for a slightly more layered outfit as the cool northeast breeze today only allowed temperatures to climb in the 60s.  A good 20 degrees cooler from yesterday!  An even stronger chill will be evident as we get ready to enter the weekend.  Before we do, we’ll bump temperatures up briefly followed a some very soggy conditions.

On Wednesday, a system pulling in from the west will pull in some slightly warmer winds across the area sending daytime highs in the 70s.  An isolated shower or two could get caught up in this flow and enter the area later in the day.  The better rains are still on track to arrive late that night and continue off and on Thursday before quickly diminishing before sunrise on Friday.  Rainfall amounts during this period are still in the range of a half to an inch for many hometowns with a few local spots seeing slightly higher amounts.

The passage of this system will crash temperatures heading into the weekend with very cool autumn winds both Friday and Saturday and daytime highs only in the 50s.
