A cold front is dropping southeast out of Canada, bringing some slightly chillier air into the region for this afternoon and Thursday.

Warm, moist air with temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s this morning is interacting with the cold snow pack to produce areas of fog. Temperatures will rise very little today thoughas a cold front moves into the region.

The air just ahead and especially behind the front is much drier, so the fog should lift this morning as the front approaches. No precipitation is falling or is expected to fall with this frontal passage. In fact, even clouds are hard to come by with this front, so skies should turn sunnier throughout the day.

The temperature should slide backwards a bit today though, with mostly mid 30s by this afternoon. Overnight lows will be in the upper teens and low 20s.

Thursday will be mostly sunny as high pressure moves in overhead, but temperatures will struggle to get much above freezing.

Friday and Saturday will be a bit warmer, with mostly low and mid 40s. Rain will be possible on Saturday, with some rain or snow on Sunday with temperatures backing down into the 30s.

Looking further ahead, temperatures will return to their below normal pattern, with true spring continuing to be delayed.
