A weak shortwave finally cleared the Tri-States earlier on this Tuesday. This feature has ushered in slightly cooler air. Winds will be out of the northwest at about 5-15 mph, but we could have gusts up to 22 mph. We are also sitting under partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies. With these clouds and breezy winds, highs will only be in the upper 50s to near 60. That is about 10-15 degrees below normal for this time of year. By Tuesday night, we'll start off mostly cloudy, but a high pressure system will begin to build into the region. As it does, it will gradually clear out the clouds. Lows will be cooler, in the upper 30s to low 40s. Some patchy frost can't be ruled out, especially for the northern tier.
Heading into our Wednesday morning, it looks like we'll start the day off with some clouds. However, as the high pressure system continues to sink into the area those clouds will clear out. That will lead to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will still be below normal though, in the low to mid 60s.
