Yesterday’s cold front is now offshore which means brighter skies and, for most, milder temperatures today. Yes the airmass moving into the region is cooler through most of the atmosphere, but the sunshine and northwesterly downsloping breezes will allow temps where we are at the surface to get warmer than they were on the “warm side” of the storm yesterday, except for the mountains.
That cool air aloft and warmer air near the ground means we’ll have to consider the introduction of some atmospheric instability this afternoon. Look for clouds to bubble up in the next couple hours especially up in the north where some clouds will grow tall enough to produce some brief showers. Where clouds and showers are most widespread north of route 2, high temps will be limited to the low 60s while the rest of the area enjoys temps in the low to mid 70s this afternoon.
