Another mild day Friday! The day is a starting off a bit damp with a few showers. Temps are already in the 50's this morning. SW winds ahead of the front will keep it mild with highs again in the mid-upper 70's! Skies will likely be mostly cloudy, with a few breaks of sun possible. Scattered showers will likely begin to pop during the afternoon with the risk of even an few embedded thunderstorms that could come with some briefly heavy downpours and gusty winds. The best chance will be later in the day between the hours of 3-7 PM. There will be a chance of a few showers and thunderstorms lingering right into Friday night, as it will take until dawn Saturday to finally get the cold front off the coast. Any early morning clouds will break Saturday giving way to increasing sunshine with Breezy NW winds following in Saturday morning. High pressure builds for the afternoon and delivers another shot of seasonal air back into the region with sunshine and highs in the 50'sand lwr 60's
Sunday will be another beauty with sunny skies and highs near 60. Another weak cold front will approach Sunday night and early Monday morning. This will come with more clouds and a chance of a few showers across the north country in the morning. This front will hang across the north, keeping milder air in place, but collapse towards the coast Monday night and Tuesday morning bringing a few more showers, and the potential for a batch of heavier rain at this point. Behind this front, even cooler air will follow in for the start of next week. Tuesday will likely only see highs near 50.
A pronounced boundary separating the cooler states (us) from the warmer states (South) will become established as showers and areas of low pressure will develop along the contrast of these differing air masses. The boundary will extend across the nation. Rain will taper off early Tuesday morning before pulling away and drier seasonal 50's & 60's return for the midweek...Wednesday & Thursday. Another low will track from the Great Lakes and into the Northeast for lat Thursday into early Friday. This far out...the first weekend of May is looking drier and cooler. A warmer pattern of weather should be developing heading into May. Enjoy the mild 70's while they are out there!
