An area of low pressure has been moving south of our area today. While it has not produced any precipitation, it has contributed to the considerable high level overcast observed today. This system will move off the coast tonight and this will allow for partial clearing. High pressure across the Great Lakes will begin to build across the region tomorrow and Saturday. This will result in partly cloudy skies tomorrow and mostly sunny skies on Saturday. It will also continue the cooler than average temperature regime around the area. By Sunday, high pressure will be centered just west of Washington. At the same time, an area of low pressure will be slowly moving northeasterly, adjacent, but off shore of the east coast. This means the rain associated with this system will remain east of our area but it will also mean winds will be blowing from the east. This will keep skies mostly cloudy on Sunday and Monday along with very chilly temperatures and increasing low level relative humidity. So the best way to describe outdoor weather conditions on Sunday and Monday would be to call it cloudy, damp and chilly.
