Cloudy, Cool Start To The Week

Temperatures will remain cooler than average the next few days with scattered showers. Our weather is courtesy of a slow moving low pressure system working through the northeast. Low pressure systems generally cause a rising motion in the atmosphere by literally sucking surrounding air towards a central point. With nowhere to go but up, that rising air tends to cause clouds to form a little more easily, increasing rain chances.

Today (Monday) will remain mostly cloudy (a slight improvement from this weekend). An isolated shower is possible, but many towns will stay dry. Showers look more widespread on Tuesday with temperatures staying in the 60s statewide! Wednesday is a transitional day with a lingering sprinkle. Thursday looks dry and warmer!
