Warm and Breezy
QUINCY (WGEM) -
High pressure is dominating the Midwest right now and is giving us mostly clear skies. That high pressure does sink to the south and that lets loose some southerly wind on the Tri-States. As a result, an exceptionally warm day is in store for us Tuesday. With daytime high temperatures that will top out near 70°. However, a storm system will be approaching out of the north west. While the strongest area of low pressure will ride well to the north of the Tri-State area on the Canadian US border, the attendant cold front will sweep through the area overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday. This cold front will spark a few scattered showers or light rain. There is not expected to be much precipitation accumulation. What you will notice is decidedly colder temperatures on the backside of the cold front as the wind shifts from the south to the northwest. That cold front slides through the area sometime early on Wednesday and while we will start off on the warm side, temperatures will be dropping precipitously throughout the afternoon hours dropping down to the mid 40s by the time late afternoon gets here. It’s not exceptionally chilly behind the cold front as overnight low temperatures just drop down to near the freezing mark to slightly below the freezing mark for the rest of the work week.
