Brief Cool Down Before Milder Times

Behind the departing low, some early sunshine this morning, but as the ground warms clouds and the wave passes through expect more clouds to rotate through, as well as the slight risk for a few passing light showers or sprinkles. Behind the short wave, skies should be breaking this afternoon for some increasing sunshine with a breezy west wind. Highs will be in the 40’s in the clouds, Lwr 50’s in the sunshine towards the coastal plain. Most of the sun today will be found in the south…yet most should be clearing as we head towards evening.
