Discussion

A series of coastal lows just to our east will continue to keep our weather unsettled right into Friday. High pressure will then build back into the region for the weekend and an overall warmer weather pattern will set up in the eastern states. In fact, by the weekend high temperatures are likely to rise into the 80's each day as a high pressure ridge sets up in the East. The only “fly in the ointment” for the late weekend will be a potential back door cold front that could prevent such warm readings, but right now, the bet is against that from happening.
