Dry weather is expected Wednesday. It will be cooler, but still mild, before the next low pressure system strengthens and lifts northeast into our area Wednesday night into Thursday.

Wednesday’s highs will be around 40 degrees with partly sunny skies. That strong low pressure system is set to impact our area Thursday.
