Summer-like and dry week ahead

Forecast

Only spotty storm chances by the weekend...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Clear, Pleasant. Temperatures In The 60s.

OVERNIGHT: Mostly Clear, A Bit Cool. Lo 52.

TUESDAY: Sunny & Warmer. Hi 80.

Skies will remain mostly clear tonight as high pressure remains overhead. With dry air and calm winds in place, it will turn cool overnight with temperatures dropping to around 50 by first thing Tuesday morning. Tuesday will begin a significant warm-up as highs reach around 80 under mostly sunny skies. Get out and enjoy it!

An unseasonably strong ridge of high pressure will build over the northeast United States, allowing for summer-like warmth to pump north by mid-week. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s from Wednesday right through the weekend, and lots of sunshine can be expected as the atmosphere remains capped. The ridge will retrograde west a bit this weekend, allowing for some disturbances to move through a northwest flow aloft. This may lead to stray storm chances by Saturday, but as a whole, rain chances look spotty over the next seven days. We could really use some rain as our yearly rainfall departure is now around 2″.
