Rain from the overnight will be exiting the region first thing Friday morning as low pressure slides south of New England and pulls away from the region. Winds will be shifting back to the WNW wind direction and we will begin a nice summer warm up. Skies will turn mostly sunny Friday afternoon with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80's. The nice warm summer conditions will last through the weekend with a good deal of sunshine and scattered afternoon “puffy” clouds. However, a very weak disturbance will sag into the region Sunday that could trigger an isolated afternoon shower, primarily in the mountains, though. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 80's and then come close to 90 in some spots on Sunday with increasing humidity levels. It really looks like a great weekend to be at the beach or on the lake or your favorite swimming hole!
As an area of high pressure moves off the coast Monday, the mugginess will continue with highs in the mid-upper 80's, but more in the way of clouds will be advancing. A slow moving low will be digging into the Great Lakes and meander its way eastward through the first part of next week. Numerous showers and thunderstorms will prevail starting Tuesday and Wednesday. These showers and storms will be loaded with water and can produce some heavy downpours.
Have a great day!
