Discussion

Strong low pressure that formed yesterday along a stalled out frontal system will slam into New England today, but we’ll experience gradual clearing skies with comfortable conditions. The weekend will turn out somewhat unsettled with the threat of showers and thunderstorms increasing by Saturday night and Sunday as a frontal system approaches the Mid-Atlantic region from the Great Lakes. That front should clear the coast by early next week paving the wave for pretty decent weather to start the new week.
