BLOG: Cool Now…Mild Later
Thanks to high pressure to the east yesterday, much of the region saw pleasant conditions in advance of a trough that will be moving into the region today. Luckily for the Northeast however, high pressure to the west will extend a ridge over the area, leading to dry condition again today despite the upper level pattern. Low pressure will swing to the south of the area, bringing rain to much of the southeast, however only some morning clouds will impose on what is otherwise a nice fall day.
Tonight expect to see skies clearing as high pressure builds in overhead. Expect areas to radiate, especially those away from bodies of water, with temperatures dropping below freezing in places.
The first half of the weekend looks quite nice, with high pressure slow to move out of the area as an upper level ridge to the west slows down the progression of any storm systems that may impact the area.
Seasonal temperatures and plenty of sun for the time of year will make for a great Saturday. The second half of the weekend should stay equally nice, with high pressure shifting slowly east. There may be a few more clouds compared to Saturday, but temperatures should get into the 60s with warmer air aloft helping to nudge highs compared to Saturday.
