Soon, a Canadian high pressure will influence our forecast
QUINCY (WGEM) - The backdoor cold front that we talked about yesterday cleared the Tri-States last night. Even though that front is gone now, it still affects our forecast for today in a few ways. The front change our winds around to the east/northeast. These winds have been brining in drier air due to the dew points falling some. With the dew points dropping, you may notice the drier/slightly cooler feel to the air. The east/northeasterly winds are also bringing in slightly cooler air. So today will be slightly cooler, with highs ranging from the mid to upper 70s. That is pretty seasonable for this time of year though. We will have plenty of sunshine through the rest of the day.
Tonight will be a little cooler too. We will have clear skies, light winds, and lows in the mid 40s to near 50°.
Tomorrow, a high pressure system that originated in Canada will settle into the Great Lakes region. This system will be very large and will affect our forecast. It will keep us dry with abundant sunshine and temperatures will be just a hair cooler than today. Highs will still be in the mid to upper 70s though, depending on where you live in the Tri-States.
