Clouds will linger through tonight in the wake of an Alberta Clipper passing well to the north of Ohio and leftover shallow moisture.

High pressure near the Mid-Atlantic coast will provide a southeast flow and some sunshine Wednesday, with above-freezing temperatures that will allow more snow and ice to melt.

Clouds will return on Thursday, as a series of Pacific storms moving through the western states pull moisture north from the Gulf of Mexico. A mild southerly flow will boost readings into the low to mid-50s through New Year’s weekend, with periods of light rain and patchy fog.
