Visible satellite pics show a pretty well defined frontal zone across Mid Atlantic states east out into the Atlantic Ocean for many hundreds of miles east northeast. Within all this is a develpiong low offshore. The cloud line has now receded southward and dry air has taken complete control of the weather in the northeast. As close as those clouds are they will not be a problem this weekend as they will continue to shift away to the east and south.
Skies are going to be clear tonight and the weekend starts off sunshine and will finish off with sunshine. Notice the waters south of 35 north are cloud free as the tropics remain quiet and the Gulf of Mexico is crystal clear of clouds as well. This is about as quiet as it can get for Early August.
All areas from southern New England to South Central Pennsylvania will enjoy nice weather with partly to mostly clear skies tonight with lows in the 60s..50s in many cool spots across Western New Jersey and the Hudson Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania. Sunshine with just passing clouds for the entire region Satuday and Sunday with most highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. This is about as easy a forecast as we can see! Enjoy.
