Discussion

High pressure will shift off the Northeast US coastline today and this will open the door for some unsettled weather conditions beginning tonight and continuing into early next week. Today will remain quite comfortable for this time of year, but it’ll turn noticeably warmer tomorrow along with an increase in humidity levels. Showers and thunderstorms are possible tonight and on each weekend day, but much of the time will be rain-free and neither day this weekend will be a washout. A frontal system will continue the threat for showers and thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday and this will be followed by another cool shot of air for the mid-week.
