A Bit Unsettled & Cool this Weekend

Written by John DiPasquale:

Today will be cooler than the last couple of days, but it should still be a bit milder than average, as highs squeak into the low 60s with the help of some afternoon sunshine!  Late tonight & especially later Saturday, the upper level storm associated with the low in the pic above to the north will create quite a few clouds for the weekend with a scattering of showers developing, mainly Saturday afternoon into the start of Sunday.  There could very well even be a little lake effect rain shower activity Sunday through the early afternoon before it dries up & shifts east, as high pressure slowly builds in.  Either way, Sunday still looks to be the better of the two weekend days, but I do not believe either day will be stellar.  Highs both Saturday & Sunday will be within a few degrees of 55, with Sunday likely be the mildest & overall driest.

See the orange color on the map above?  That's some nice mild air waiting to swing in, & it should somewhat get in here early next week setting the stage for a nice start to next week with some sun & milder 60s returning for Monday.  The cooler air will then try to win out for Tuesday & Wednesday in the wake of a little backdoor cold front.  Early signs, though, are pointing toward a nice, brief warm up Thursday, possibly into Friday, before some real chilly air tries to get in here at some point next weekend & beyond!  We'll see...lots of time b/w now & then for many things to happen.  Many signs have been pointing toward the warm up then dramatic chill to follow for some time now.

Have a great day & weekend everyone!



  1. People better keep an eye on this time next Sunday. There could be something big brewing?

  2. Yeah, without a doubt! Looks like the tropics are trying to pull something together and send it up the east coast but way too early to tell...
