The winds can make our weather.{ } A large general area of low pressure north of New England is swirling around and keeping cool air over us and with some east winds we have plenty of low clouds.{ } May be tricky to see the transit of Venus starting at 6PM but here is where you can go and try and see it.{ } This pattern will continue into tomorrow and with those east to northeast winds and a bit of lift out in the Blue Ridge there are a few showers.{ } Look at how Skyline Drive is almost in the cloud today.{ } By late in the week and the weekend, this pattern breaks down and some of that really warm air in the midwest come our way and we may hit 90 by Sunday.
