THE WEEKEND WILL BE NICE AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES FROM THE NORTHWEST… RAIN CHANCES GO UP ON MONDAY AS A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM APPROACHES FROM THE SOUTHWEST

After a rather warm day on Friday, high pressure will be building into the region today (Saturday) bringing dry and sunny weather. Temperatures will be cooler today and they should be even lower tomorrow as our winds switch around initially from the northwest but will become northeast by Sunday. At this time of year, a northeasterly wind is usually a chilly wind as the water temperature is still cold. This past week, we saw a wide range in temperatures across the region due to the predominately onshore flow.  Temperatures inland were near 80 degrees during some of the afternoons but near the coast, temperatures were much lower due to the wind off the water. The high pressure system that will bring us the great weather this weekend will move offshore on Sunday night giving way to an approaching low pressure area from the southwest. Rain chances will go up on Monday as the frontal system moves through the region.  By the middle of next week, we should dry out. Temperatures should be near seasonal levels.
