Don't get used to yesterday's warmth as temperatures will gradually drop and run below average for several days. Despite some morning sunshine, expect the clouds to increase again today.{ } An upper-level circulation is overhead causing pieces of energy to affect our region and at times triggering a few sprinkles (30% Chance) today and tomorrow. Some locations may even see a quick snow flurry tomorrow, but that will be the exception. This circulation will also push unseasonably cool air into place and keep it here over the next several days with highs closer to 40° by Sunday. This pattern also causes the wind to pick-up at times, so expect breezy conditions today through the weekend.
