Discussion

A strong cold front swept through the region yesterday causing some heavy rainfall and it will be followed closely by a secondary cold front that will cause afternoon clouds and possible showers. Cooler air has moved into the region behind the first front and even colder air will make Thursday likely the coldest day of the week. A clipper system will then drop out of the Upper Midwest towards the region on Saturday producing more rain and/or snow showers in the area and yet another system will have to be watched to our southwest for early next week. One final note, if skies cooperate this evening (not too likely), look for Comet PAN-STAARS in the western sky near the crescent moon shortly after sunset; otherwise, wait until tomorrow evening as sky conditions should be quite favorable by then.
