Weather - May to December


May to December

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

An intrusion of cold air left us nearly 20 degrees shy yesterday of our normal high at this time of year. The clouds have pushed out to sea as a big high pressure system slides in from the northwest generating subsiding air and clear skies. The drier air means a cold start to the day, but the sun will take hold and with a shift of the winds to the south, the temperature will push back up to the more respectable figures of the mid-60s. High clouds should spread over the area toward the evening. Wednesday looks a little less pleasant with scattered showers in the morning. Some brief clearing is possible in the middle of the day but with a low pressure system following in from the Midwest, it is likely to be at least late Thursday before the rain threat diminishes much.

Today: A brisk start, but becoming warmer. Sunny but high clouds building up. A south wind of about 10 mph (16 kph). High in the late afternoon of 63F (17C).

Tonight: Clouds with a shower possible late. Low 47F (8C).

Wednesday: Cloudy start with scattered showers. Rain likely towards night. High 62F(16C). Low 47F (8C).

Thursday: Cloudy with chance of rain. High around 65F (18C). Low around 45F (7C).
