Additional cloudiness is continuing to overspread from west to east across the region as a slow-moving front begins to make a faster approach toward the region. Spotty showers are forming ahead of the boundary, and some western counties will encounter occasional light showers for the evening and nighttime periods, while the sky will become progressively overcast for the remainder of the area. Temperatures will be at their warmest levels early Thursday morning, with lower 60s east and mid to upper 50s west, before the cold front passes through, propelled by a vigorous upper low tracking across the Deep South and promoting the surge of colder northern air through most of tomorrow. Showers will continue to be mainly light and becoming fewer in number by late in the afternoon. Daytime readings will gradually fall into the lower 50s with a stronger breeze from the northwest. Mornings will dip into the 30s Friday morning with some clearing; highs will climb closer to 60°, seasonable but much colder than the recent past.
