After a long day of rain, showers are now retreating eastward. Today’s rain was courtesy of a cold front edging in from our west. This front will pass through tonight, although it won’t serve to cool us down. We remain mild and damp through the overnight, and with the breeze weakening we’re in a good setup for early morning fog on Monday. Once the sun rises, fog and low clouds will burn off. We’ll see temperatures reach around 50° in the afternoon and may even have a few peeks of sunshine late in the day.
The aforementioned cold front is forecast to be just to our south for much of Monday, but it will lift back to the north as a warm front Monday night. An increasing wind from the southwest will warm us even further for Tuesday afternoon, which could reach near record warmth in the mid 60s. The record is 68°, set in 1941.
The threat for rain increases later on Tuesday, likely after the sun sets. This rain is ahead of the next approaching system- a cold front that will arrive from the west. This cold front is likely to knock our temperatures back to seasonably cooler air near 40° for much of the remainder of the week. The cooler air plus moisture and winds out of the west/southwest on Wednesday should create a few lake enhanced snow showers, likely east/northeast of Lake Ontario. High pressure builds in on Thursday and we start with sunshine but increase the clouds through the day.
