Weekend forecast improving
Bulk of liquid to stay south
After a dry, but chilly rest of the week, a weak warm front noses into the region Friday night which may bring a touch of mixed precipitation or light rain to northern and western areas. What was once a potentially damaging rain event for the snow pack of the region appears to be a miss. High pressure racing eastward blocks an approaching storm from the Mid-Atlantic and guides heavy rain out to sea to the south on Saturday.
Temperatures will climb above seasonal norms for Saturday before settling back to near average for Sunday
Outlook through Monday
Northern and western areas may see an early morning mix or rain shower, but any precipitation appears to dissipate soon after sunrise. It will be a breezy day, but warm. A weak cold front slides through Saturday night which brings cooler conditions for Sunday. Our next concern comes in the form of the timing of a coastal storm and an approaching cold front Monday into Tuesday. Stay tuned.
