Weather: Clearer Skies to Prevail


Clearer Skies to Prevail

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

The rather unsettled picture continues in the near term. A low- pressure drifting lazily up the coast is causing showers and thunderstorms, the western edge of which we will see this morning. As the jet stream digs east a little, though, the cyclone will be pushed off to sea, with clearer skies and warmer air from the west set to make Thursday rather pleasant.

Wednesday: Light showers clearing up by mid-morning. Otherwise cool and cloudy, then some clearing in the afternoon. Continued on-shore winds, becoming northeasterly. High 72F (22C).

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy. Low 63F (17C).

Thursday: A very nice day. Mostly sunny and warmer winds from the west becoming southerly. High 80F (27C). Low 60F (16C).
