Another beauty of a day can be expected for Friday. High pressure over us will allow for another clear and crisp start to the morning. Sunshine with winds shifting to a warmer wind direction to the south will help temps to climb back to more seasonal levels in the Lwr 80's by afternoon. Temps will still be cooler at the beaches with more of a SE wind. High clouds will be increasing during the afternoon ahead of a warm front which will move towards New England Friday Night. The warm front marks the leading edge of a warmer more humid airmass which will arrive over us this weekend.
We will be watching a batch of showers along this front tracking from the Great Lakes through New York and eventually into Northern New England. Showers and maybe even a thunderstorm will be arriving after midnight Friday night and for the early morning hours on Saturday. Saturday will see lots of clouds in the morning with the risk of a few scattered showers...nothing too heavy. The warm front will lift north through NH during the day and eventually some warmer more humid air will arrive during the afternoon with dewpoints climbing into the 60's with highs climbing back into the Lwr 80's. Any breaks of sun could warm temps into the mid 80's, but clouds should help keep the temps and instability in check. A cold front arrives in the west later in the day and could trigger a few late day showers or t'storms into Saturday night as the front cross the state.
Sunday will shape up to be the best beach day with light west winds, partly to mostly sunny skies and highs climbing well inot the 80's and nearing 90. It will still be muggy. So plans to stay cool on Sunday will come in handy. We will have to watch a piece of energy pushing through Sunday afternoon which will provide just enough lift that it could trigger a PM T'storm later in the day. Something to watch for. Either way, the weekend is not a wash out and there will be a good amount of summer weather to enjoy. It just wont be as perfect as last weekend.
A stronger cold front will push through Monday. This has the potential to come with a period of heavier rain and stronger storms. We will have to monitor the potential for some severe storms with this frontal passage. The best chance for showers and storms will likely come in the morning through the midday. Temps are looking warm heading into next week with highs in the 80's nearing 90 again. The trend will be for some drier weather with building high pressure for the midweek.
