Discussion

A cool frontal passage has ushered in cooler and less humid air and the rest of the work week will feature very pleasant weather for this time of year. After highs are generally confined to the 60’s this afternoon, temperatures late tonight should bottom out in the 40’s in most suburban locations as this fresh, chilly air mass settles into the area. Clouds will increase on Friday and then the weekend will become somewhat unsettled as it turns warmer and more humid with the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. The weekend does not, however, look like a total washout.
