A gusty, cold northeast wind developed overnight in response to an area of low pressure sliding by south of the region. This chilly northeast flow of air will remain in place throughout the day today, holding temperatures under 50F and yielding a rather dreary feel to our Wednesday.
The combination of the departing storm center and the northeast flow is funneling low clouds in off the ocean and promoting the development of some ocean effect sprinkles and light rain showers. This general theme of gray skies and damp conditions will hold through midday, before somewhat drier air starts to take hold and starts to shut off the light precipitation.
If we’re lucky we’ll see some holes in the overcast develop this afternoon, with some breaks of sunshine during the afternoon and evening, before sundown.
