Weather: Double Jeopardy


Double Jeopardy

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

There are two factors to look out for in our weather for the next couple of days. One is a small low pressure system at the surface being steered up the East Coast by mid-level flow aligned nearly parallel to the seaboard. This should generate some clouds on Tuesday night but deal us only a glancing blow as it passes by to the east on Tuesday night. The other factor is a rather intense surface low pressure moving in from central Canada, whose effects we should see beginning Wednesday evening. Overnight rain is certainly possible resulting from this system.

Tuesday: Variable cloudiness. Light winds. High 73F(23C).

Tuesday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 58F (14C).

Wednesday: Partly cloudy - chance of rain towards evening. High 72F (22C). Low 61F (16C).
