Sunny & Mild Today, Dry Thru Saturday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


The beautiful weather of the past few days will continue today with high pressure centered over the Mid-Atlantic region. We’ll see plenty of sunshine and milder temperatures today with highs reach the low to mid-70s on average today with a few spots possibly topping off in the upper 70s this afternoon. A weak cold front to our north will push southward towards Maine during the day today and will likely push a few clouds into northern areas this afternoon otherwise sunshine will prevail for the day. We’ll see a few clouds around tonight with temperatures right around 50° for overnight lows.


Southwesterly winds will push a little bit of cloudiness into the area Friday so skies are expected to turn out partly sunny for most spots. Temperatures will remain mild Friday with highs in the low to mid-70s. A cold front will approach the state Saturday however it has slowed down a bit so Saturday is going to remain dry with showers staying west of the region for the daylight hours. We may see some low clouds and patchy fog in spots to start Saturday otherwise expect partly to mostly sunny skies to start the weekend with temperatures near or a little above 70° for highs. The cold front will push in from the west later Saturday night and cross the state during the day Sunday bringing us a good chance of showers for the second half of the weekend. With clouds and showers in place, temperatures will be a bit cooler Sunday with highs staying mainly in the 60s. Fall officially arrives at 4:44pm Sunday. A cooler, more fall-like airmass will move in behind the showers for Monday. Monday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-50s to low 60s. It looks like high pressure will slide into the region and provide us with another good stretch of weather for much of next week.



Rest of Today: sunny and pleasant. A few more clouds will move into northern areas later this morning and into this afternoon. Milder with highs between 72°-78°. West/northwest wind around 10 MPH.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy skies. Lows between 46°-53°. Light and variable wind.


Friday: partly sunny. Highs between 71°-76°. Light winds will become southeast 5-10 MPH.


Saturday: partly to mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.


Sunday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the mid-60s to around 70°. ***FALL OFFICIALLY ARRIVES AT 4:44 PM. ***


Monday: partly to mostly sunny. Cooler with highs in the mid-50s to low 60s.
