Coming up next on CBS 2 On The Point with Marcia Kramer at 11:30, we have Craig Allen with your First Alert Forecast to give us an update on the weather. Craig, over to you. Dave, the weather outside may look nice, but it’s definitely chilly with temperatures in the 30s and a breeze coming from the north-northwest. So, make sure to bundle up with jackets and sweaters before heading out. Currently, we have a temperature of 37 degrees with a north-northeast wind at 9 miles per hour.
It feels just like December today, despite the pretty picture outside. As we go through the week, temperatures will gradually climb. The next chance of significant rain will likely be on Friday.
Now let’s review how the weather will unfold. Yesterday, we had temperatures in the mid-50s, but today it’s expected to reach a high of 46 degrees.
The average high for this time of year is around 55 degrees. The sun will set at 4:41 this evening. Looking at today, we can expect mostly sunny skies with occasional patchy clouds.
Thicker clouds and wet weather will remain to the south along the mid-Atlantic coastline. This is due to low-pressure systems in the area, but they won’t reach us because of the high-pressure ridge protecting our region.
So, we’re good for the next several days. Although it’s colder today than we would prefer, it’s the second weekend in a row without significant rainfall. However, the daytime highs will still be around 46 degrees, so the chill will linger. Tomorrow will be similar, with temperatures ranging from 45 to 50 degrees and plenty of sunshine. There might be a little cloudiness on Monday night and early Tuesday, with a brief possibility of showers or sprinkles. But nothing more than that.
After that, temperatures will continue to rise. However, Tuesday will be windy, with gusts between 20 and 30 miles per hour. Despite being a couple degrees warmer, it may still feel chilly and in the 40s. But after Tuesday, temperatures will keep climbing. Now let’s take a look at the seven-day forecast.
Today, we can expect a high of 46 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds. As we head into tonight, the city should stay above freezing, but all the suburbs will be in the 20s to around freezing. It will be a cold and frosty night around the tri-state area. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with temperatures around 50 degrees. There’s a possibility of a sprinkle on Monday night into the first part of Tuesday, which will be a rather gusty day with high temperatures in the 50s.
From Wednesday to Friday, temperatures will climb back up to around 60 degrees, but we can expect wet weather towards the end of the week. Many forecasts are suggesting rain during that time, which is a change from the current dry spell. Thank you for warning us about the frost tomorrow morning.
