A return to partly cloudy skies today ahead of more showers Friday… trending much warmer next week…

Partly cloudy skies are expected with a seasonable day on Thursday, with highs reaching the middle to upper 60s. Clouds will begin to increase overnight, and then a weak offshore system will be close enough to provide scattered showers, mainly on Friday morning. After that system exits, skies will again begin to clear Friday evening and overnight.

We start off partly cloudy on Saturday, and then the trailing cold front moves through on Saturday afternoon, accompanied by a line of showers. This is not expected to be an all afternoon event, but more likely a 1-2 hour period during the afternoon/early evening that brings the showers threat. Temperatures remain seasonable on Saturday, but slightly below average by Sunday despite mostly sunny skies. As we head into next week, the mostly sunny skies will continue, but a noticeable warming trend will take place through at least the middle of next week with a ridge building into the Eastern US, and some 80°F+ readings are likely by Wednesday.
