Outlook through next week
Showers return everywhere Saturday night
A cold front will approach the region this afternoon which will increase clouds and bring showers to northern areas this afternoon, then a chance everywhere overnight into early Sunday.
The front appears to stall over southern New England Sunday. An area of low pressure travels along it, and will bring a chance of showers for southern areas of Maine Sunday afternoon. The shower activity ends by around dawn on Monday.
The north and mountains receive their rainfall Saturday afternoon through early Sunday. Southern areas get most of theirs Sunday into early Monday.
Late week thunder potential
The stalled front isn't expected to go too far through the first half of the work week. Another area of low pressure rides along the boundary and appears to bring another round of rain for southern areas Tuesday. The ridge below the boundary noses northeastward Wednesday into Thursday, and as it does will increase chances for showers and thunderstorms Thursday into Friday.
Folks camping and hiking later this week would be wise to stay updated on the forecast.
Temperatures through the period will generally be in the 50s at night and 70s during the day, with shorelines the cooler areas when onshore wind is present.
Next weekend appears dry with comfortable temperatures for now.
Enjoy the weekend!
