After sitting off the New England coast for nearly a week, that strong area of high pressure has moved out to sea. In its wake, a complicated area of low pressure stretching from TN to the Carolina Coast will slow drift northward over the next couple of days. This will keep our area under a widespread overcast with increasing chances for rain. Temperatures will slowly moderate over the next few days, as well.

Later in the week, as temperatures rise to and then above average levels, skies will turn partly sunny but there will still be a chance for afternoon thunderstorms. It is still a bit ealy to forecast the weekend weather in detail. But right now it looks like scattered showers are possible on Saturday and Sunday.
