Overcast, Wet, Cool

Temperatures will be steady or rising tonight with occasional rain and areas of fog. The rain ends toward dawn, after some morning clouds, temperatures rocket into the lower 70s for Tuesday afternoon highs. Tuesday looks like the warmest day since Thanksgiving around the Foothills.

Please pardon some broken pages... We completed the move to new servers Friday night. Now, we are in a position to bring back some broken pages; however, getting everything back to "normal" is still probably takes through the end of January.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front swings through late tonight, passing east of the area Tuesday morning. That will bring an end to any leftover showers, and promote a sunnier/warmer Tuesday afternoon. Get outside if you can, as it will be the warmest weather since Thanksgiving.

The next weather-maker will be low-pressure tracking across the Deep South during Thursday. Clouds return during Wednesday with a period of mostly light rain expected Wednesday night. The rain could end as a wintry mix, especially across the Northern Foothill counties. Thursday will feature decreasing clouds and chilly temperatures.

Friday and Saturday will be dry and with seasonably cool temperatures. Another low-pressure system tracking across the Ohio Valley on Sunday represents the next opportunity for rainfall by Sunday night.
