Surface high pressure will build eastward from the Great Lakes today, and the northwest winds will usher in a cooler and drier air mass which will persist through Friday. We’ll see partly sunny skies today with highs around 70 and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Tonight should be mostly clear with lows in the upper 40s and northwest winds 10 to 15 mph until midnight, becoming light and variable.
Friday should be sunny and cooler with highs in the lower 70s and light and variable winds. Friday night should be mostly clear with lows in the mid 50s and south winds around 10 mph.
The high will pass into the Gulf of Maine on Saturday putting us into a southerly airflow with increasing temperatures and higher humidity. We’ll see partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 70s and south winds 10 to 15 mph. Saturday night should be mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers as a cold front and associated upper level trough approaches. Lows will be in the lower 60s.
