Play Misty!

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A persistent trough over the slow-moving Northeast surface fronts and a stream of disturbances passing through the area will continue our cloudy and wet spell for a few more days. As a weak cold front crawls offshore early on today, a small wave may develop just off Nantucket, keeping the moist low-level flow in, especially in the coastal sections. By late today, a better-organized low pressure system will begin to move towards eastern Great Lakes. Moisture associated with it will reach us by tomorrow; there is a good potential for soaking rains throughout the region. With a chance of a secondary low forming by late tomorrow on the mid-Atlantic coast and the main system slowing down on its eastward progress in response to a blocking ridge offshore, no wholesale clearing can be hoped for before early next week.

Today: Cloudy and cool with a chance of coastal drizzle and locally dense fog. Few afternoon breaks may occur well to the west and north. High 46F (8C) with damp, onshore winds.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy near the coast with spotty fog and drizzle, partly cloudy elsewhere. Low near 40F (4C).

Tomorrow: Cloudy with rain developing in the morning. Strengthening southeasterly winds. Milder high of 54F (12C).

Sunday outlook: Continued mostly cloudy, unsettled and cooler. Highs in low to mid 40s (4-6 C).
