Weather

Half and Half!

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A brief taste of summer (Friday's high temperature were flirting with the 90F (32C) mark for the first time since May), will be but a hazy memory, as a cold front and some severe weather of last night will finally push offshore on Saturday.

Clearing will be gradual, especially on the Cape, where, due to a small wave along the front, cloudy and wet conditions will persist for the first half of the weekend. Sunday is expected to be sunny, dry, and beautiful throughout the region before another cold front sweeps down from the Great Lakes late on Monday.

Saturday: Cloudy morning with leftover early showers and widely-scattered thunderstorms gradually giving way to clearing skies by mid afternoon. Light winds will become northerly. High temperature of 76F (25C).

Saturday night: Becoming clear, cooler, and refreshingly dry, with light northwesterly breezes. Lows near 62F (17C).

Sunday: Sunny and warm, with some high clouds on the western horizon by sunset. High 80F (27C), low near 60F (16C).
