The pesky trough which kept weather in the area cold and rainy this week will gradually transition to the east tonight. A ridge will begin to influence the eastern US tomorrow, allowing highs to reach the lower 40s°F (5°C). On Sunday, the ridge amplifies allowing much warmer air to overspread the region. Southerly winds will notch highs into the lower 50s°F (10°C) and bring overcast skies to the area. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. We finally make it into the lower 60s °F (10°C) on Monday, but the trade-off is rainy weather.
