Northwest flow aloft will continue today but will slowly begin to flatten out overnight but more so on Saturday. This will keep things on the cool and dry side for the most part today however we will begin to moderate late this afternoon and tonight. Surface moisture over the area tonight will have morning lows running about 10-14 degrees warmer than this morning.
This weekend we will continue to see temps moderate with both lows and highs running above normal. There is still the possibility of a few showers early Saturday. A weak impulse will drop down through the area just before the mid-level flow goes zonal early Saturday. Rain chances will begin to slowly increase overnight Sunday as increasing lift and moisture over the area leads to showers and possibly a few thunderstorms but the bulk of the rain will likely remain just north of the area.
Next week looks active and wet. The main issue will be the development of a weak frontal boundary Monday that will sag south towards the region Tuesday but will stall before reaching the coast. This along with the abundant moisture and broad lift aloft will lead to scattered to numerous showers and embedded thunderstorms on and off through the entire week.
