Hi there!  Look for a very chilly overnight as temperatures free-fall late when winds become light.  Lows approach record territory.  High pressure drifts right overhead overnight which gives us the lighter winds and a break from the high brush fire threat.

Friday should be terrific.  With much lighter winds than today, temperatures soar well up into the 60s under sunny skies.  The sun will get filtered by thin clouds at times, especially during the afternoon and evening.

Low pressure developing over the Plains states will track up the Ohio Valley Friday and right over New England Saturday.  Rain from this storm will arrive here after midnight tomorrow night and continue into Saturday morning.  The rain could be heavy for a time and some embedded thunder is possible too.  Rainfall estimates are coming in between 1/2″ and 1″ – just what we need after only 1/4″ of rain or less in the past 10 days.  

During the day Saturday, some drier air tries to wrap in after noontime and may allow some clearing.  Upper-level energy swings through Saturday evening and night though and likely triggers additional shower activity.  It may even be cool enough for some mixed precipitation in northern and elevated areas!

Showers end Sunday morning and as the upper-level energy (very slowly) pulls away, we should see gradual improvements and perhaps some sun during the day Sunday.  It will become blustery and remain cool though.
