The rain from Tuesday’s system has moved well away from the area and we are expecting a dry day Wednesday. With the ground being wet and skies clearing out early Wednesday morning, patchy dense fog has developed and is expected to stick around through the morning.
Areas north and west of the city that are below freezing may see patches of freezing fog and black ice. This will lead to patchy slick spots on the roadways, especially bridges and overpasses. Once the fog burns off, we’ll see a little bit of sunshine before clouds move in from the west. Temperatures will approach the 50 degree mark again Wednesday, and if 50 is reached, it will be the fifth straight day of 50+ temperatures.
Clouds may hinder our chance of reaching that mark, however. The increasing clouds will be associated with a weak clipper that will pass by well to the north and an extending cold front that will pass through the city. As the front passes by Wednesday evening, there may be a brief shot of light rain with perhaps a few flakes mixing in at night, but we are not talking anything significant.
We are not expecting a large push of cold air with this front. Although Thursday will be somewhat chillier, high temperatures will still remain around or slightly above-average with some sunshine to start the day.
