Skies were cloudy across the state this afternoon with widespread
areas of fog. Temperatures late in the afternoon were in the middle
30s north to the middle 40 south. Southeast winds were less than 10
High pressure continues to gradually shift east of the region today. The
main story into early next week will be mild conditions with temperatures
generally into the 40s and a bit of cooling with northwesterly winds
ending the weekend. After a round of light precipitation moving
through the state tonight and into tomorrow, the next opportunity for
any rain or snow will not move through until the mid week next week.
At that point, a big low pressure system is likely to affect the
region, bringing about opportunities for rain, snow and strong winds.
Details on temperatures and precipitation amounts will come into
focus over the next few days. Behind that system, temperatures cool
off with highs around freezing and lows into the teens and 20s.
