A pleasant day ahead with morning sunshine giving way to increasing cloudiness this afternoon.

TODAY: Morning sunshine will fade behind increasing clouds
Highs: Mid to Upper 50s
Wind: SW 10-15 mph

OVERNIGHT: Becoming overcast
Lows: 38º-44°
Wind: WW 5-10 mph

TOMORROW: Cloudy and chilly with periods of rain
Highs: Mid to Upper 40s
Wind: NE 5-10 mph

Today will be the best outdoor weather day until Wednesday...in my humble opinion. High pressure will keep the sunshine overhead just a bit longer today. But cloudiness will increase this afternoon, as the high pressure system moves out. Rain will be likely at times tomorrow and northeasterly winds will keep temperatures in the 40s. Sunday looks a little bit better. I say that because the rain will be a little less likely with probabilities set at 30% and there could be a few brief, patches of susnhine. But temperatures will again remain in the 40s.

I have seen the scenario play out many times where the weekend weather is lousy and beautiful conditions return on Monday, just as you go back to work. That will not be the story this time around. Rain is likely across the region again on Monday with clearing developing on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you are longing for a stretch of sunny days with temperatures in the 70s, contact your travel agent.
