Warm Friday, Cooler Weekend

Spring is finally showing in all its splendor as temperatures today will approach, or even surpass the psychological barrier of 70°F (21°C). Of course, those who think in Celsius face a slightly different psychological barrier at 20°C (68°F).

Today and tomorrow we will be mostly under the influence of a high pressure system centered off the coast of Florida and another stationary high pressure system centered over Canada. These two systems will bring warm and dry conditions to our region. As the southern high moves to the East, low level flow from the ocean will develop bringing relatively cool and moist air which will translate into cloudy skies and drizzle for Sunday and Monday, especially in the morning. Highs in the mid-60s°F can be anticipated for most of next week.

Today: Partly cloudy to mostly sunny in the afternoon. High 70°F (21°C).

Tonight: Clear. Low 48°F (9°C).

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny and breezy High 64°F (18°C).

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, cooler and with a chance of drizzle. Low 46°F (8°C) High 58°F (14°C).
