Clouds will hang around as we start off the day in the Tri State area.
This is due to the same upper level low that has kept in rain and clouds over the last two days. It's finally going to move more to the east today and allow us to see a few more rays of sunshine on the way home from work.
Skies stay mostly cloudy through noon today but we'll finally start to see the edge of this cloud deck moving overhead this afternoon and that means a gradual decrease in clouds. But the timing does not bode well for our overnight temperatures.
We'll fall into the mid 30s overnight and this means patchy frost across the Tri State area. If you have more sensitive plants, make sure to cover them up or bring them in. Patchy frost can easily damage those plants. But flowers like mums and asters are a bit more hardy and don't get damaged as easily.
QUICK TIP: Do you know what fabric is best to cover your plants with? A sheet or blanket is your best option when covering plants. Don't grab a tarp or anything plastic from the garage because it doesn't allow your plant to breathe. Cloth, like your sheet, will help hold the surface heat around the plant to protect it while still allowing it to get the oxygen it needs.
High pressure is finally moving in for Thursday's forecast and this means sunny skies, light winds and slightly warmer temperatures. We'll climb back to 60°F. But the ample sunshine is short-lived due to a fast moving system coming in from the Plains.
This will increase cloud cover for Friday's forecast and even bring in a few isolated showers that morning. Thankfully, this isn't going to derail our warm up into the weekend forecast.
