Sunny & Pleasant Today, Clouds & Showers Return Saturday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will slide through the area today giving us a sunny and seasonable day with highs in the 50s to near 60°. Enjoy the sunshine today because more unsettled weather will return to our forecast this weekend. Clouds ahead of our next storm will begin to move in during the night tonight. Nighttime temperatures will bottom out a couple degrees either side of 30° for lows.


Low pressure is forecast to move through New England on Saturday bringing us clouds and numerous showers to start the weekend. Many locations will start the day dry with thickening clouds with showers developing from west to east across the state from late morning through the afternoon. Showers won’t likely arrive in far eastern and northeastern areas until later in the day. With clouds and showers on the way Saturday, temperatures will be on the cool side with highs only in the mid-40s to low 50s. As temperatures cool off Saturday night, we’ll likely see the rain showers mixing with snow or even changing to all snow in spots especially away from the coast. An area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will drift across the state Sunday keeping us under the clouds and threat of scattered showers for the second half of the weekend. Temperatures will remain on the cool side Sunday with highs again in the mid-40s to low 50s. The upper low will continue to spin south of Nova Scotia Monday keeping us cloudy with the chance for a few lingering showers mainly during the morning. High pressure will build and get us back into sunshine from Tuesday through midweek.
