Lots of clouds limiting sunshine for Friday will keep temperatures running below average. They only warm to the mid and upper 30s by afternoon.

Northeast Highs Tomorrow

Clouds break up by Saturday morning, giving way to a beautiful start to the weekend. Flow becomes west-southwest, which will pump in much warmer air in the low to mid 50s.  You can expect more sunshine and less cloud cover to. A front will drop through the area late Sunday night into early Monday morning. Clouds will return for the second part of the weekend. With more clouds, temperatures will only warm to around 50 degrees. There is a chance for a few late evening showers too. Any rain with the front moves out by morning Monday. Clouds will part giving way to plenty of sunshine for the beginning of the week as high pressure takes hold.
TRACKING NEXT STORM
High pressure slides to the northeast setting up an easterly flow overnight Monday. Clouds increase through the day, with the extra moisture, Tuesday. Highs still climb to around 40. Late in the day, mix precipitation will move in from the south and spread north into the overnight period. Low pressure tracks along the east coast from the Gulf, dragging in more moisture. Temperatures and track of low will determine precipitation type. Right now, it looks like a mix will change over to rain before changing to snow late Wednesday night. The storm is several days away with many details to pin down. We’ll keep you posted via social media, Facebook and Twitter, along with web discussions on our website Fox43.com.
