A Beautiful Weekend Ahead

This weekend will be gorgeous, with mostly sunny skies and temperature in the mid to upper 70's. An area of high pressure sitting just to our south and east will continue to pump warm air from the south in our direction.

However, the warm temperatures and sunny skies will soon come to an end. A fairly meridional pattern setting up will bring a series of troughs sweeping across the area. The first trough doesn't appear like it will dig as far south, but will still bring cooler temperatures and the chance for some rain and gusty winds.

This second trough may dig a bit deeper and bring even cooler air into the region. Rain will also be possible this go around.

Sunny skies and a warming trend will continue into the weekend as a stubborn low pressure continues to move off the east coast. Our winds will start to shift more westerly to southwesterly by Friday, allowing warmer air to pump into the region.

A small ridge moving into the area later Saturday through the end of the weekend will allow for more sunny skies and temperatures to warm into the low 70's. High temperatures for Saturday through next Tuesday look to remain in the low to mid 50's. Get out and enjoy the week ahead.
