Fair Friday

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

An area of high pressure floating down from the northern Great Lakes will bring a short improvement in our dreary weather regime. Alas, the respite will be brief - nasty storm is a-brewing in the mid-sections of the country. Copious rains are forecast for the Southeast, late-season blizzards for the Plains and the Mid-West. Over the next few days this system will slowly move towards the Ohio and then St. Lawrence valleys, bringing us stormy and wet conditions late in the weekend and into early next week.

Today: Becoming mostly sunny and seasonable, with highs near 45F (7C). Northerly winds may turn onshore in coastal locations during the afternoon.

Tonight: Clear and cold, with lows near freezing. Light, variable winds.

Saturday: Sunny start with increasing clouds. Onshore winds and thicker overcast by nightfall. High near 42F (5C)

Sunday outlook: Cloudy and becoming windy, with rain likely. Highs in the mid 40s (67C), lows in the upper 30s (34C).
