Patchwork Skies

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A large storm system moving from the Great Lakes through St. Lawrence will drag a cold front ever closer to our area, bringing clouds, warm southwesterly winds, scattered showers and thunderstorms by nightfall. A period of unsettled weather is expected to persist until about midday Saturday, when this front will finally clear the coast and usher in a brisk, but generally fair weekend.

Today: Partly sunny and warm, with increasing clouds. Becoming quite windy in the afternoon. Chance of scattered showers moving in from the west late. High 74F (23C).

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, windy, and mild with showers likely. Low 56F (13C).

Saturday: Clouds and leftover showers early, then clearing from west to east and becoming much cooler. High near 62F (16C).

Saturday night: Clear and chilly, with biting northwesterly winds. Low near 40F (5C) in town, mid 30s (2-3C) elsewhere.

Sunday outlook: Mostly sunny and crisp, with almost seasonable highs from 55-60F (13-15C) and lows in the low to mid 40s (5-7C).
