The current unsettled environment we are experiencing is due to an area of low pressure moving through the southeast. It is staying rather weak at this time, yet unstable enough to encourage the development of light scattered showers across the region through this evening with overnight lows only falling to the lower 50s. Lingering moisture will help create some dense areas of fog before sunrise. By midday Wednesday, conditions will dry out slightly, allowing for periods of broken sunshine and allowing highs to break into the lower 70s. By midday Thursday, another area of low pressure will begin to pass through our region, bringing with it another chance of showers. These should be heavier and more numerous than those in the area today. Shower and rain chances will linger through the end of the work week, but high pressure is forecast to build in to reduce rain opportunities by the weekend. For those craving a return of cooler weather, your wishes may be granted by the middle of next week.
