Forecast Snapshot:

A couple scattered showers are possible Saturday afternoon and early evening and most of Sunday looks dry with the chance of rain very low. I expect a lot of dry time this weekend and I suspect some folks will stay completely dry. The extended period of Monday through Wednesday looks unsettled. A broad and stationary low pressure system in the middle atmosphere will spin above Hudson Bay in Canada. On a daily basis through the period, weak disturbances will rotate southward around this low and will keep a small chance of showers or a few storms each day, primarily during the afternoon and early evening with the heating of the day. Seasonably warm temperatures are expected with highs generally within a few degrees of 80 through Monday before highs drop back into the 70s Tuesday through next Friday.

Forecast Details:

An upper level disturbance will slide through the northeast Saturday. Partly sunny skies are expected by the afternoon and I think we’ll see some scattered showers or perhaps a storm develop in the afternoon and early evening. Even with the chance of rain Saturday, we will see extended periods of dry weather. I'll put the chance of rain at less than 30%. Highs will be around 80. Saturday night variably cloudy skies are expected and lows will be around 59.

Sunday looks like it will be a sunny and mainly dry day. I think it will be a few degrees warmer with highs around 83.

The weather pattern is shaping up to be a touch unsettled Monday through Wednesday of next week. A persistent and large area of low pressure located over Hudson Bay in northern Canada will rotate a series of weak disturbances southward across the Great Lakes into the northeast on almost a daily basis. The highest chance of rain or thunder comes on Monday with a 60% chance of precipitation. While dry stretches are expected, Tuesday and Wednesday will have at least a 20% to 30% chance of some shower or storm activity in the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will likely be in the upper 70s. Overnight lows should be in the 50s.
