Severe Weather Free Friday Weekend Weather Outlook
Welcome to severe weather free Friday. 3 days in a row of thunderstorms, flash flooding, hail, & even tornadoes are now behind us. It is time to enjoy a day of sunshine and that is what we have for this Friday. The satellite picture shows dry air ovehead. There are some low clouds hugging the East End of Long Island and parts of Southeast New England but those clouds should thin out today. Temperatures today will top out in the upper 70s to lower 80s both along the coast and inland. The radars will be quiet for the first time since Monday.
We move on to the weekend where the upper air pattern has changed. It is now being driven by a developing trough in the Eastern US. Rather than dealing with stalled frontal boundaries overhead we are switching over to weather fronts coming through and they keep on moving. The first system arrives Saturday night in the form of a weak weather front. Saturday we will see sunshine most of the day with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Saturday night we will see some scattered showers around as that weak front moves through.
Low pressure in Ohio will head into Southeastern Canada with a second trailing front coming through late Sunday afternoon and evening. Sunday we should see clouds and some sun with some scattered showers or a thunderstorm late in the day. Highs Sunday will be in the 70s to near 80. This front will usher in a shot of very cool air for the start of next week.
As far as temperatures are concerned they will be on the cool side but there is a difference between seeing temperatures just into the 70s with clouds and an ocean wind and seeing the with at least some sunshine. Monday will be a nice day with sunshine mixing with a few clouds. Highs will be just into the 70s in most places.
We will hold on to this dry air for Tuesday with lots of sunshine and highs in the 70s. Warmer and more humid air arrives Wednesday as the next cold front approaches and that puts a chance for showers in the forecast for later in the day. Highs will be in the 80s. Late next week we could see a flip back to storminess in the Plains and an active late week or weekend with showers and thunderstorm chances.
