Discussion

Clouds will dominate the skies today and this will cut temperatures a bit from yesterday and rain is likely to arrive at mid-day and continue right into the evening. After a damp start on Wednesday, the afternoon will feature very mild conditions despite mostly cloudy skies and temperatures could surpass the 60 degree mark. Much colder air will move into the Northeast US on Thursday anchored by strong high pressure and out temperatures will turn noticeably cooler. It’ll stay quite chilly on Friday and another batch of moisture from the southern states will advance northward towards the I-95 corridor. The result should be rain by Friday night which is likely to continue on Saturday.
