Sunday: Partly Cloudy & Continued Cool

Highs: Lower 50s | Wind: N 5-15 mph

We saw a little sunshine today and I am happy to say we will see increasing sunshine and decreasing cloudiness for the weekend. Skies will begin clearing tonight as the last atmospheric disturbance passes through the region. High pressure will build into the area for the weekend keeping temperatures cooler than normal but providing more sunshine than we have seen in what seems like a very long time.

Early next week, another weather disturbance will pass south of our area. It will not bring rain or even heavy cloudiness but it will reinforce the very chilly air mass in place. By Wednesday though, we may be dealing with another coastal low pressure system. Computer models are consistently making the case for a low pressure system to develop near the SE U.S. coastline and move northward bringing a chilly rain to our region. While there are no indications this will be anything near the scale of Sandy, it could in fact bring gusty winds and heavy rain to coastal areas to our east and northeast. This is the last place we would want to see any form of adverse weather.
