High pressure will dominate the weather through the weekend, though a reinforcing weak cold front will pass the region on Friday night. We’ll be on the cooler side of high pressure through Saturday with a seasonable chill in the air, which might feel rather cold to some who have gotten used to the very mild weather of the past few months.
We get back on the warm side of the high pressure area by Sunday, and then a frontal system will slowly approach from the west early next week. A mild and unsettled period of weather will be the result for Monday-Tuesday. As we get into the colder air Wednesday, we will have to watch for a low pressure wave forming on a front that will have just passed. This may bring a chance of rain and/or snow to parts of the region around midweek. For the moment, based on trends and persistence, I’ll lean wet versus white.
