A major spring-like storm is brewing over Texas, tracking toward the Great Lakes with the New Year's first threat of severe weather. That system stays well west of us except for a weak warm front sweeping through the area Thursday, our best chance of showers. Then dry and warmer into the mid 70s for the weekend!
A wedge of Mid-Atlantic high pressure holds on with a strengthening coastal trough pushing clouds inland. Any rain? Just a slight chance mainly in coastal areas, and that's the same set-up tonight and tomorrow with more northeasterly winds.
The other issue is patchy fog developing late night tonight and early tomorrow morning, and again Wednesday night with some drizzle. That weak warm front then travels up the coast Thursday, and Atlantic high pressure retrogrades back over our area with a renewed SW flow bringing in the unseasonably warm air for the weekend!
