StormTeam 8 Forecast:  High 64° / Low 54°... A slight chance of showers tonight. Areas of dense fog are also possible. More rain tomorrow.

Updated Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 5:47 PM...

Part one of a two part system brought scattered showers to much of the area today. The heaviest and most persistent rain fell in areas along and north of I-90.

We'll see brief break in the rain tonight as we'll be located in between parts one and two of this system. We'll keep a slight chance of some light rain or drizzle, but most areas should see little in the way of measurable rain. One thing to watch out for tonight will be areas of dense fog. The combination of a very moist atmosphere near the surface, cool temperatures and light winds tonight could produce areas of fog. The fog could become quite dens in spots... especially in areas that picked up significant rain earlier today. speaking of temperatures tonight... expect fairly mild night as overnight lows only drop into the lower to middle 50s.

The second part of this system will lift northeast across the region Thursday as low pressure rides north along a frontal boundary. This will increase the rain chances again Thursday afternoon with a few t-storms also possible. South winds ahead of the low will push highs Thursday into the upper 60s to near 70º.

Looking Ahead... Much cooler air follows Thursday's system with highs Friday only in the low-mid 50s. In addition to the sharply colder temperatures, northwest winds could gust between 35 and 40 mph at times. Add to that a chance for a few showers. Friday could end up being a very raw day. Even cooler air follows that system with highs on Saturday only in the middle 40s to around 50º.  We also added a small chance of showers Saturday afternoon as the cold air aloft could pop a stray shower or two.

Sunday and Monday still look cool, with highs only in the lower to middle 50s. That small chance for a few showers continues as well.

Temps warm a bit more heading into the middle of next. Expect highs in the lower 60s Tuesday, middle to upper 60s Wednesday and upper 60s to near 70° Thursday. Again... small rain chances look to dot the forecast through much of next week.

Have a great night!  -Cory Malles
