PM Update: Cloudy, with rain possible by Wednesday afternoon as Nor’easter approaches

Behind yesterday’s fall front, temperatures returned to normal today and the sky treated us to a mix of clouds and sun.  But a coastal storm is developing, and clouds are already increasing from the east.  By tomorrow afternoon, we’re blanketed by clouds and rain chances start to grow.

Through Tonight: Mostly cloudy and seasonably cool.  Lows range from the upper 40s in the cooler suburbs to the low-to-mid 50s downtown.  Lights winds from the north.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Overcast skies with increasing winds from the northeast (10-15 mph in the afternoon, gusting to 20 mph or so at times) as the coastal storm inches closer.  By early to mid-afternoon, we have a 20-40 percent chance (highest southeast, lowest northwest) of rain, increasing to a 40-60 percent chance (highest southeast, lowest northwest) by around 5 p.m.  Highs are cool, from 60-65.
