BLOG: Pleasant Weekend
High pressure that has moved out into the Atlantic will bring a milder southwesterly flow Saturday and Sunday. The southwesterly flow around the high is a dry one, and although we do expect patchy mid and high level clouds at times, there’s still a good deal of sunshine and a pretty nice day for this time of year. The southwesterly breeze will be hardly noticeable and only around 10-12 mph range during the midday and afternoon.
We will end up mostly cloudy Saturday and Sunday, and moisture increases in the southwesterly flow in advance of a cold front. That will help keep temperatures a little higher Saturday night, and despite more clouds than sunshine Sunday, the southwesterly flow in advance of the front will help push temperatures into the low 60s.
There is not really any upper level support to accompany this front. This front will cross the area Sunday night. We will probably have some showers, and perhaps even several hours of steady rain Sunday night into Monday as some showers and thunderstorms that will be developing farther south and west along the front down in Kentucky and West Virginia Sunday slide east-northeastward up and over the front.
