The areal coverage of rain is expected to increase over the next few hours, and this will help to dissipate the fog that is beginning to thicken up across the northwest part of our forecast area. Thus will not issue a dense fog advisory at this time. If the rain does not become as widespread as expected between now and sunrise, an advisory may eventually be required.
As the main upper system and cold front approach this evening, isolated thunderstorms will become possible, but instability looks to be insufficient for severe storms. It appears all rain will end
Before temperatures fall below freezing late tonight.
A major warmup is on tap for Wednesday and Thursday just ahead of the next cold front. Much of the forecast area will see temperatures warm into the 70s Thursday afternoon. With the warmer temperatures and breezy south winds, fire danger will also be on the rise Wednesday and Thursday.
Much colder weather will return for Friday into early next week. A potential winter storm looks to affect the area just beyond this forecast period, with multiple wintry precipitation types appearing possible. Stay close to guidance temperatures the next couple days.
