Temperatures this afternoon will be a good 10 degree warmer that yesterday as an area of high-pressure is now to our east…providing for the return-flow. Elevated humidity and cloud coverage overnight will bring temps in the low 50s for Thursday morning low temps along with areas of patchy fog!
A cold front will dropping into the upper Mississippi Valley Thursday before reaching the east coast Friday afternoon. Weak forcing with a trough relatively far away from the forecast area will keep precip chances along the boundary from getting much higher than 30 to 40% through Thursday night. It will however knock temps back down a good 10 to 15 degrees Friday. A secondary cold front will be in the area over the weekend. This front will provide a focus for numerous showers to develop Saturday night into Sunday morning. Rain will taper-off Sunday morning with clearing skies Sunday night.
Early next week looks to be dry for now as high pressure builds in behind the weekend front. However, the pattern looks more progressive than this week. That means rain chances could return as early as Tuesday.
