Increasing Clouds Today, Wet Start To The Weekend 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Clouds will continue to increase this afternoon as a warm front pushes towards the region. A few scattered showers are possible later this afternoon and evening as well. Temperatures will be a bit cooler today due to more clouds in the area and an onshore wind. Highs will range from the mid-50s to low 60s, coolest along the coast. Shower chances will gradually increase during the night tonight as the warm front continues to moves towards New England.


Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north Saturday and pull a cold front across the state late in the day and into Saturday night. Showers associated with the front will be most numerous during the morning hours then become scattered during the afternoon. Despite the clouds and showers Saturday, temperatures will be mild with highs in the 60s inland and upper 50s along the coast. Our weather will improve on Sunday as low pressure moves away from the state. We could see a few showers over northern areas as an upper level disturbance passes to the north otherwise expect a brighter and drier day with temperatures in the mid-60s to low 70s for highs. A weak disturbance moving through the area Monday will give us a few clouds and possibly a shower. Temperatures will remain very mild Monday with highs possibly reaching the mid-70s in spots.


Rest of Today: increasing clouds. A few scattered showers possible. Highs between 57°-64°, coolest along the coast. South/southeast wind around 10 MPH.


Tonight: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Lows in the 40s. South wind around 10 MPH.


Saturday: mostly cloudy with showers likely during the morning then scattered showers during the afternoon. Highs between 58°-69°, coolest along the coast. South wind around 10 MPH becoming southwest.


Sunday: partly to mostly sunny, most clouds north. A shower possible up north. Mild with highs between 65°-73°.


Monday: variably cloudy with a few showers possible. Highs in the mid-60s to mid-70s.


Tuesday: morning showers then brightening skies. Highs in the upper 50s along the coast, 60s inland.
