A Dry and Very Warm Weather Pattern is in Store for the Tri-States

QUINCY (WGEM) – Parts of the Tri-States woke up to patchy dense fog Wednesday morning, but by noon, the fog lifted and skies were partly cloudy. As for the rest of Wednesday, low pressure to our east will be slow to move out, and that will allow for gradual clearing as the evening progresses. Overnight Wednesday, skies will be mainly clear and temperatures will be in the middle and upper 50s, making it perfect to open the windows overnight.

All-in-all, this means the Tri-States has entered “Second Summer” just in time for the beginning of October.
