For those looking for a day to open the windows and let in some fresh, dry air, you'll have a couple of them to round out the week. DownEast areas may see some fog around as the humidity departs Thursday morning. It will be a decent day overall, and a bit on the breezy side. An upper level disturbance may pop a shower in the mountains, but the state will be otherwise dry for the day.
An upper level low sets up shop for the weekend
The ridge that brought us the heat and humidity moves to the north and east, and an upper level low from the northwest settles in over the region over the weekend. As a result, clouds increase on Friday, and brings a chance for showers Saturday and Sunday, and into next week.
The weekend won't be a complete washout for coastal areas, but rain showers appear more frequent for the mountains and north.
Folks camping out in the north country may hear a rumble of thunder Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Without a tropical hose attached to this system, rain appears to be generally light to moderate at times. You can check out the 7-day rain outlook on the site from Weather Prediction Center for an idea of what to expect for your area. While not a drought buster, it may take the edge off, especially for the mountains and parts of the north.
Humidity begins to rise as we head into Saturday and Sunday, but not nearly as oppressive as of late.
The upper low appears at this point to hang around until the middle part of next week, keeping a chance showers in forecast for Monday and Tuesday.
While it will be showery at times, temperatures appear to run a few degrees above normal for both highs and lows through the weekend and into next week.
