Forecast Snapshot:

An upper level low pressure system located in the Canadian Maritimes will keep impacting our forecast tonight, albeit with mainly just clouds. The chance of rain tonight is low, but not non-existent. Weak high pressure will build in Tuesday through Wednesday and mainly dry weather is expected. A late week a storm system will develop off the eastern seaboard. At this time, the bulk of the precipitation will affect the fish in the Atlantic, but I can see a slight chance of some shower activity here. By the weekend, the weather will turn more settled and temperatures will increase.

Forecast Details:

Plenty of clouds will be with us through tonight. There will be a lot of dry time, but I can’t rule out some showers before about 2am. Lows will drop to within a few degrees either side of 40. It looks like plenty of clouds will persist Tuesday, especially early in the day, but I also think, with the strong late April sun angle, we should be able to mix the atmosphere enough to see a few peeks of sunshine in the afternoon. It will be a touch breezy with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. A weak area of high pressure is expected to arrive Tuesday night and this should clear the skies out with lows in the mid 30s to near 40.

Wednesday looks great for the time being. I think we’ll see mostly sunny skies with highs climbing into the upper 60s, maybe near 70. By Thursday, however, the weather will begin to turn a bit more unsettled. A few showers are possible with highs around 64. A storm system will develop off the eastern seaboard and at this time it looks like most of the precipitation will fall away from our area. I am forced to keep a slight chance of some showers in the forecast to account for any shift in the track. It would not surprise me if a lot of folks stay dry through the Thursday/Friday time frame. Highs will dip into the upper 50s Friday.

Clouds may be stubborn to clear Saturday but highs should get back into the low 60s. High pressure is slated to build in Sunday and Monday. I think by Sunday we’ll be seeing temperatures around 70 and in the low 70s Monday. Both days bring sunshine and very little chance of any rain.
