More Clouds, A Brief PM Shower

A fast moving front drums up more clouds and a quick hitting shower or two this afternoon. Unfortunately rainfall amounts will be just enough to wet the ground and ruin a recent car wash. Clouds hang tough tonight with clearing taking place Friday as dry high pressure takes the helm heading into the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are gorgeous, premium leaf-looking weather!

Forecast Discussion

An area of low pressure moves from the Upper Midwest today to New England Friday. Accompanying the low is a fast moving cold front responsible for increased cloud cover and a shower or two this afternoon. We can't buy any significant rainfall with the frontal passage as all the "good stuff" remains well to our north. In areas where it's cold enough some light to moderate snow will fall from eastern New York state to Maine.

Clouds decrease Friday morning as high pressure begins to build over the Southeast. The weekend is incredible- sunny and quite warm for late October standards.

Another weak cold front drops south from the Ohio Valley late Sunday cooling things down just a hair for Halloween. Behind the front, Canadian based high pressure wedges down the eastern flanks of the Appalachians Monday night with little consequence other than more cloud cover. Thereafter, sunny and warm is the story for the remainder of next week.
