Welcome to December. It's the first day of meteorological winter and while it's rainy and chilly, it's certainly not wintry. In fact, longer range guidance still suggests it will be some time before it looks and feels wintry around here. In the short-term, we're dealing with the effects of a low pressure system just east of Ocean City and a warm front south and west of our area. This includes low clouds, rain and fog. And while radar is indicating the steady rain may move out of the area this evening, more will arrive late tonight. Areas of fog will continue, as well.
A cold front across the Ohio Valley will move towards and eventually across our area tomorrow. Ahead of the front, there will be more rain likely. Expect rain to impact the morning commute and we can't rule out the possibility of rain for the afternoon commute either. Skies will begin to clear tomorrow night.
High pressure will move in for Thursday and Friday and then dominate the weekend weather. Partly sunny skies are forecast for Thursday with a gusty northwesterly breeze. High temperatures will be around 50 degrees. We are calling for mostly sunny skies on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Highs will remain around 50 degrees on Friday but then begin to slowly moderate through the weekend.
