“It won’t be a particularly nice day,” said Carol Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Sunday’s forecast has rain, cold temperatures and breezy winds.

“Rain is likely in the afternoon and it should be light, about a tenth of an inch,” Smith said.

Smith expects the rain to end around 4 p.m.

Gusty winds are expected to accompany the wet weather, with southwest winds predicted to be at 15 to 25 mph and gusts blowing up to 35 mph.

A wind advisory will be in effect until Sunday evening at 6 p.m.

“When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty cross winds,” the advisory stated.

Smith also warns that fog may cause low visibility and the wind may cause some tree limbs to fall on roadways.

“We always say to slow down, allow extra time and increase your following distance,” said Smith. “Those are precautions that you might want to take.”

The gloomy weather is not expected to last long, with sunny skies predicted for later in the week and high temperatures reaching 80 degrees by Wednesday.

“It should clear out and be nice by Tuesday,” Smith said.
