Cool with a few showers Sunday, then we’re warming up….A fast-moving cold front will sweep through the area late Saturday night into Sunday, giving way to mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered showers. While most of our temperatures will stay above freezing through early Sunday morning, there could be some sleet or snowflakes mixing in briefly with the rain, especially for our northern communities. Otherwise, expect rain.  Most of the wet weather will clear the coast by Sunday afternoon, giving way to partly sunny skies. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Next week, we’ll see a nice warm up. Highs will rise into the 60s on Monday. Then, as high pressure remains anchored over the Atlantic Ocean, highs will soar into the 70s from Tuesday through Thursday.  We’re expecting plenty of sunshine for most of the work week, too. However, a few showers are possible next Friday into Saturday.

Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (40%). Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Partly Sunny. Scattered Showers (40%). High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: E/NE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Mostly Sunny. Warmer. High temperatures in the lower 60s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
