From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will give us some brighter skies today after what has been a very gray stretch of weather for much of this week. Low pressure centered to our south will gradually pull away from New England as the day progresses. We’re starting with clear to partly cloudy skies over the northern half of the state this morning with overcast skies and some patchy drizzle elsewhere. As the day progresses, high pressure will take over and we’ll see sunny skies over northern areas and clouds/drizzle drying up and giving way to partly to mostly sunny across the rest of  the state. Temperatures will be seasonable today with highs topping off in the low to mid-60s. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy and lows will drop back to the mid-30s to near 40° north and low to mid-40s elsewhere.


High pressure will bring us a nice day Friday. We may see a few clouds early otherwise expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the 60s. A cold front over the Great Lakes region will push towards the state on Saturday. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies Saturday with scattered showers developing during the afternoon as the cold front gets closer. Temperatures will be in the 60s for highs on Saturday. Steadier, heavier rain will arrive Saturday night and continue through Sunday morning as the cold front crosses the state. Rain will taper off from west to east across the state Sunday morning as the front moves to our east followed by brightening skies during the afternoon. Dry weather will be with us for the start of next week.



Today: mostly sunny north, morning clouds and patchy drizzle giving way to partly to mostly sunny skies elsewhere. Highs between 60°-67°. North/northeast wind around 10 MPH.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Lows between 36°-45°. North/northeast wind 5-10 MPH.

Saturday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers mainly during the afternoon. Steadier, heavier rain at night. Highs between 60°-65°.


Sunday: morning rain ending followed by brightening skies during the afternoon. Highs in the mid-50s to mid-60s.
