Saturday starts off with areas of fog
For those early risers who want to get a jump on the weekend activities, expect areas of fog that could be locally dense in spots in the morning. As the post-dawn hours progress, the sky will clear out, which will make for a mostly sunny afternoon with less humidity and near seasonable temperatures.
But it will be a breezy one...
As the clouds decrease, the wind gusts will increase out of the west northwest as high pressure moves into the region. It appears to be breezy for much of the region through the day on Saturday, settling down during the day on Sunday.
Folks heading out on lakes and ocean for a boat trip can expect some chop on the water which may make it a bit rough. Folks in smaller vessels should use caution. Sunday appears to be the better watercraft day.
Showers return for the start of the week
Clouds begin to increase Sunday evening ahead of a weak warm front approaching from the west. Showers can be expected to break out from west to east on Monday. A trailing cold front keeps showers in the forecast for Tuesday. Low pressure forming off the Mid-Atlantic brings the threat for showers, drizzle and perhaps fog for the shorelines on Wednesday. After a dry day on Thursday, another frontal boundary approaches the region on Friday.
5-Day Outlook through Wednesday
Temperatures certainly appear on the cool side from Sunday onward. Folks in the mountains and north in protected areas may see some frost Sunday and Monday morning, but that is likely to be isolated at best. While it will be showery off and on through midweek, there is not a whole lot of accumulating rainfall expected.

I will be taking the weekend off. My next update will come on Monday.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
