AC DENSE FOG
A cold front is slowly drifting toward the region tonight. With that front, an area of low pressure will ride up along allowing rain and drizzle will develop into the morning hours. The rain will persist through the morning commute and last through around lunch time before it tapers off.

We will get a brief break in the afternoon, however, there is still the chance that some drizzle could occur. A second area of low pressure will form along the front and this one will create another round of rain, possibly heavy around dinner time and will last through the night.

The cold front will bring temperatures down throughout the day tomorrow.

Temperatures are expected to be at around 50 by daybreak. By late afternoon we can expect temperatures to be around 40.

At night, temperatures could be at around the freezing mark causing a little concern as the storm departs Saturday morning.

There could be a lingering snow shower north and west of the city that could give a quick coating of snow.

High pressure moves in on Saturday with clearing skies. It will be a chilly day the highs only reaching into the lower 40s.

On Sunday, we start out with partly sunny skies.  A complex storm starts to make its way from the Gulf Coast and arrives in our region late in the day. With cold air still in place, we may start out as a wintry mix on the onset of the storm before it changes over to rain in the evening. The amount of icing that we may get is still to be determined. Temperatures will be in the 30s for the day.

Monday will be unsettled as the storm continues to dump rain across our area and snow in interior sections of the northeast. Temperatures will jump up to around 50 by the afternoon. As the storm tapers off late Monday night into Tuesday morning, the rain may turn briefly back to some snow. Highs on Tuesday will be in the lower 40s.
