Clouds and cool air linger Wednesday with highs in the low 70s

A front lingers south of the region tonight and Wednesday. Meanwhile, high pressure builds across the Great Lakes which will keep winds coming out of the east. This will bring in moisture off the Atlantic and bank it against the mountains.

Tonight, look for partly cloudy skies with a few areas of patchy drizzle. Lows in the mid 50s.

Another day of lingering clouds Wednesday, with patchy drizzle in the mountains along with cool afternoon highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.

By Thursday and Friday, the high takes over with increased sunshine along with slightly warmer temperatures.

For now, the weekend offers more sunshine, with highs in the mid and upper 70s.
