Temperatures are expected to be on the chilly side today and tonight as a cold air mass remains in place. This will be changing as the week moves along and there will be “well above” normal temperatures through at least mid-week.

The rain chances will persist, starting tonight and lingering through at least Thursday. The persistent pattern of precipitation will be the result of the storm track in the upper levels that will change little over the next few days. Gray and dreary weather conditions are expected.

Rainfall amounts will not be overwhelming, so not much in the way of localized flooding is in the forecast, but there will be some soggy lawns and fields this week.

The other aspect, mentioned above, will be the run of warmer than usual temperatures.

Enjoy the mild pattern, for now, this will be a luxury in a few weeks as we are diving into the cold winter months.

But what is not all that normal is the potential for a subtropical low to form in the middle of the Atlantic in December. Happens once in a while, but not normal.

Stay safe,
