Forecasters predict warm weather through the day in St. Lawrence County, wind and rain expected tonight
Monday, October 15, 2012 - 2:26 pm

Seasonably warm weather will continue throughout the day in St. Lawrence County, accompanied by wind and rain as temperatures drop in the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

A surface low-pressure system located over Georgian Bay will track east-northeastward into southwestern Quebec today, forecasters say. This low will produce unseasonably warm temperatures today with highs nearing 70 in the valleys. Strong gusty winds will also result from the low tracking to our north and west.

Scattered rain showers will be possible tonight as a cold front associated with the aforementioned low moves across the North Country. Behind the cold front, temperatures will become more seasonable as a ridge of high pressure builds into the region late Tuesday into Wednesday.
