Nice Dry Friday Weekend, Low Chance Scattered Showers Halloween
A building dry air mass in the Great Lakes will make sure that Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England will have a nice weekend. We are going to be a bit on the cool side today but we should have a good deal of sunshine. The high goes to our north but it will be anchored in Southern New England. This means that while the flow will be onshore it will be dry. The problematic onshore flow will be well to the south in coastal Virginia and North Carolina. So we are looking good today with highs mostly in the mid to upper 50s.
Radars are nice and quiet and they will remain so through Sunday. Clear skies tonight will send temperatures down into the 30s inland with the usual round of frosts and freezes and lower 40s coastal and warmer urban areas. Sunshine starts off the weekend with Saturday highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
I don’t see any issues for Sunday either as the high starts to slide to the east. There should still be plenty of dry air left to give us a sunny Sunday. Perhaps a few clouds will come in late in the day from the southwest but I’m not impressed frankly by the next weather system. Highs Sunday will be into the 60s.
There is a weather system moving across the South over the weekend but that weather system will turn northeast and weaken. At the same time low pressure develops well off the Southeast US coast but that exitis to the east with no developement, tropical or otherwise.
This leaves us with a Monday where we will have changeable skies with probably some breaks of sunshine. We will throw in the chance for a few scattered showers. Highs Monday will be in the 60s. I’m thinking most of the day will likely be rain free and some folks won’t see any rain at all. After this goes by it will be a quiet week ahead with dry weather and temperatures above average Tuesday through next Friday.
