The weekend will get off to a great start with sunshine Saturday. Light west to southwesterly breezes will promote highs in the mid-upper 50's. We're not talking about breaking any records here, but the mid-atlantic and southern states can expect many records to be shattered with highs reaching the 60's and 70's!
A weak back door type cold front will drop down from the north Sunday morning and then stall out in central MA. Clouds will ride along this stalled front, along with upper level winds directing clouds into New Hampshire Sunday. So, skies will be mostly cloudy for Sunday and slightly cooler with highs in the Lower 50's along with a light onshore wind. Temperatures will even be in the 40's across the Lakes and Mountains.
A wave of low pressure will be tracking eastward from the Great Lakes for Monday. The day will start out cloudy and dry with light showers by the afternoon developing. Winds will pick up ahead of the front from the south with temperatures still holding in the 50's. The main batch of rain will arrive during the afternoon and continue into Monday night. The rain will come down heavy for a brief time along with gusty winds. Once the front pushes through, breezy WNW return for Tuesday with drier weather and cloudy to partly sunny skies and highs still holding on to near 50.
Another weather system will enter the Northeast for later Thursday and Friday, but temperatures will still be above normal so we'll see rain showers developing late Thursday that may onlymix with some snow to the north on Friday before ending.
Have a great Weekend!
