Another warm, sunny day Thursday before things cool down again

Weather

The stretch of well-above-normal temperatures is coming to a close. An area of high pressure that has settled across the Southeastern U.S. and brought in the warm southwesterly flow will move offshore. Cooler air will filter into the region as two cold fronts cross through the region late Thursday night and on Friday night. The cool air will stick around through early next week before temperatures start to moderate during the latter part of next week.

Skies will start out clear Thursday evening. Overnight, the first of two cold fronts will arrive bringing in some clouds around. The front will weaken as it approaches, so the risk of showers will be minimal. Much of the region should remain dry through the night. Temperatures will be around 60 degrees.

Friday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies. It will be a touch cooler in the afternoon as temperatures climb to around 70 degrees. The second cold front will approach late in the day bringing back some more clouds around. Like the first front, it will pass without much in terms of precipitation, however, it will bring down the temperatures.  

Saturday will feature a good deal of clouds as an upper-level system meanders across the Northeastern US. Perhaps, a sprinkle will be possible, but it will be generally dry for most. It will be much cooler as a northerly breeze keeps the temperature at around 60 degrees in the afternoon. 

Expect more of the same on Sunday. Outside of a bit more sunshine, it will be another cool day as temperatures hover right around 60 degrees again.

On Monday, a storm system could bring back the chance of considerable amount of rain for the first time in a while. The storm may be slow to exit at well, keeping the chance of rain to linger into Tuesday as well. Currently, the city is running well over 2 inches below normal in terms of rain for the month. Any rain that we get will be beneficial at this point. In terms of temperature, it will remain cool on Monday and Tuesday with temperatures in the upper 50s.
