High pressure off the New England coast today will give our area an easterly flow of cool air along with mostly cloudy to cloudy skies.

A warm front will cause rain mainly after midnight tonight into Friday morning, rain may be heavy at times with possibly a thunderstorm. It will become quite mild before a cold front passes through the area in the afternoon. Winds will become gusty behind the front. Colder air will move in at night. Rainfall amounts will average between a half to one inch Friday morning.

Strong high pressure building from Canada will give us sunny skies both Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will be a little above normal on Saturday and near normal on Sunday.

Monday will be mostly sunny with cooler than normal temperatures.

A weak area of low pressure so I give us a chance of light rain on Tuesday.

Wednesday should be dry with slightly above normal temperatures as high pressure builds into the area.
