Mostly Sunny & Milder Today, Great Stretch Continues 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure continues to dominate our forecast and will provide us with more sunshine and some milder weather today. Temperatures will top off a few degrees warmer than yesterday with highs in the 60s to near 70° this afternoon. We’ll also see a few high clouds around especially southern and coastal areas associated with a storm along the Mid-Atlantic coastline. Some high cloudiness will linger mainly over southern and coastal areas tonight otherwise we’ll see mostly clear skies and temperatures in the 40s for nighttime lows.


High clouds will stick around our forecast on Friday as the ocean storm slowly moves away from the region. We’ll average mostly sunny on Friday and above average temperatures with highs in the mid-60s to around 70°. A weak cold front will drop through the state later Friday and Friday night, allowing some cooler air to move into the state for the upcoming weekend. Strong high pressure over northern Quebec will slide southward towards New England over the Columbus Day weekend giving us some more beautiful fall weather through Monday. Temperatures for Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be in the low to mid-60s for most locales.



Rest of Today: mostly sunny with a few high clouds mixed in especially over southern and coastal areas. A bit milder with highs between 62°-69°, coolest along the coast with an onshore breeze. Light winds will become south/southwest 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: mostly clear with a few high clouds over southern and coastal areas. Lows between 40°-49°. Light and variable wind.
