A Nice Sunny Low Humidity Weekend
Widespread Rain Chances Fade For Next Week
Our weekend gets underway and we are in the middle of a nice super dry air mass. We hit bottom in the 50s this morning away from warmer urban areaas which were closer to low an mid 60s. Satellite views are showing generally clear skies except for Southeastern New England where a disturbance offshore grazed that area with clouds overnight but those clouds should move away. So it is a day of partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures that will reach the lower 80s in most places except for the coolest spots inland not getting out of the upper 70s.
There is nothing to worry about on the satellite or radars during the weekend and tonight will be nice and clear with lows in the mid 50s to near 60 inland and low to mid 60s coast and warmer urban areas. Sunday will be nice and sunny though some clouds could come in later in the day from the west. Highs again will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
For much of last week it seemed that the Northern Mid Atlantic to Southern New England were setting up for a much needed soaking rain. The upper air features driving this are not coming in to the west as early indicated but rather, it suppresses much of the rain to the south and east. We will be in an onshore flow with a low to the south and a high to the north meaning that at the very least we will see lots of clouds along with some passing showers or some drizzle. However the idea of a couple of inches of rain for the entire area seems to be fading away at the moment. Monday through Tuesday highs will be just in the 70s with that flow off the ocean. Northeastern New England could see much of the rain from this as well as Virginia Maryland and Delaware but the area in between could be left out of it. Weather conditions should improve for the second half of the week.
