Areas of dense fog likely Monday night and Tuesday morning. Expect visibility below 1/10th of a mile in some areas.

Tracking more rain and a big temperature drop…again!…Our weather is about to get pretty interesting over the next several days. We’re not only tracking more rain, but we’re also tracking high temperatures in the 30s and lows in the teens.  Now, that’s cold!

As we move through our Monday night, expect partly cloudy skies as a cold front moves offshore. It’s going to be a chilly night, with low temperatures in the 40s.

On Tuesday, another frontal system will move in from our south. We’ll start the day dry with filtered sunshine, but by late afternoon into the evening, we’ll see scattered rain moving in from the south. High temperatures will be in the low 50s.

On Wednesday, there is a slight chance of a shower, mainly early in the day. Otherwise, we’ll see a good deal of clouds. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Then, a strong cold front sweeps through the area by Wednesday into Thursday, giving way to some of the coldest air so far this season. We’re expecting highs in the upper 30s on Thursday. Morning temperatures on Friday will be in the upper teens and low 20s. By Friday afternoon, we’ll see highs in the mid 30s!

Then, next weekend, we’re tracking a chance of rain in the area.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Chilly. Lows in the low 40s. Winds: W/N 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Filtered Sunshine. PM Showers (30%). Highs in the low 50s. Winds: NE/E 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Good Deal of Clouds. Slight Chance of Showers (20%). Highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
