Sunshine Cool Today Friday Through Memorial Day Looking Dry & Mostly Nice

Last night’s cold front has now passed south and east and skies cleared out nicely overnight. We have a nice day ahead and more importantly, thanks to the northerly flow aloft we should see far less as far as smokey skies are concerned and instead we will have bright sunshine. It will however be on the cool side today as a large high over the Great Lakes spreads out across the Northeast and Great Lakes. Most highs today will be in the 60s with a cool northeast wind. We also have a cool night ahead of clear skies and most lows by morning will be in the 40s with the coldest spots down close to 40 by Friday morning.

On the satellite loop there are clouds and showers developing well east of the Florida coast. This area has produced several storms over the last week that have all gone out to sea. Another storm is set to form tonight and Friday but this one will develop further to the west and will be tucked in off the Florida and the Southeast US coast.

Normally a low like this woud be an issue as it would love to crawl its way up the East Coast. However that sprawling high from the Great Lakes to New England is going to pretty much remain in place right into early next week and that should suppress the system and any rain and keep it well to the south.

Here is how each day breaks down. Friday there will be no issues. It will be partly to mostly sunny with a nice easterly breeze. It will still be on the cool side with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s and temperatures will be cooler along shore locations. There is no rain in the forecast which at least makes getaway day easier.

As we head into the weekend one thing that will be in play is a bit of an upside down look when it comes to temperatures. This is because the further south you go, the flow is more onshore. Also the further south you go, the higher chance that some clouds will start to become an issue. For most of Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England, Saturday should be nice and sunny, perhaps some high clouds along the southern fringe. Highs will be in the 70s with higher numbers as you go north and slightly lower numbers as you head south.

Sunday the coastal low will nudge a little northward and it will push rain as far north as Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula. This means that Sunday we could see high clouds further north and that could veil the sunshine a bit but the rain will not get further north so it should be fine. Again most highs in the 70s with higher numbers as you head north into Southern New England and lower numbers as you head south to Southern New Jersey and points south.

The low will then drop back down a little south Sunday night and Monday and this leaves us still under the control of high pressure and the clouds will likely sink southward as well. It looks to be a day of sunshine. The air mass will be moderating so temperatures will go higher Monday and we should see highs inland reach into the 80s though again local sea breezes will keep beaches cooler.

Looking ahead to the rest of next week, much if not all of the week will likely be dry with only small interruptions with the occasional week front and very little if any rain. The Weather Prediction Center has little or no rain for the next 7 days at least for much of the Northeast and Northern Mid Atlantic states. Enjoy the holiday weekend. Usually the Memorial Day weekend you lose at least one day to rain. It looks like this year we will have the rare gift where all three days will be rain free.
