Smoke/haze still lingers Thursday, but not as intense as Wednesday…

It will be partly sunny day on Thursday – again in the background – but hazy/smoky skies are expected due to ongoing wildfires in the Quebec Province of Canada, although not nearly as intense as Wednesday. Like yesterday, smoke may reach ground level, but not as high AQI readings expected today. A stray shower will be possible in spots this afternoon, but most of the activity remains north of I-78.

A better chance for more widely scattered showers exists Friday afternoon wrapping around low pressure in northern New England. There may still be some haze to contend with, but continuing to lessen. Temperatures will increase over the weekend into the low to mid 80s, and a mostly sunny Saturday (smoke not expected) is followed by a partly to mostly cloudy Sunday. Scattered showers will be possible as the next cold front approaches the region as early as Sunday night. This front may get hung up a bit and bring steadier showers on Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning, which would be much needed rainfall. A weak trailing system may bring a few more showers our way Wednesday.
