Strong high pressure over New England along with Tropical Storm Arthur well off the Carolina coast will combine to give our area a breezy day today but skies will be mostly sunny, it will be cooler than normal especially along our coastal areas.
Plenty of sunshine and continued breezy and cool on Wednesday.
High pressure will remain in control of our weather on Thursday with continued mostly sunny skies but there will be less wind.
Milder weather Friday through the holiday weekend, conditions will be mainly dry but a weak low pressure area may give our area some showers late Friday night into Saturday.
What a difference in the forecast for this week as a few days ago it looked like our area would receive several inches of rain, but most if not all of the rain will stay to our south and this week will mainly stay rain free.
