The surface high is strong, and the upper level ridge will maintain its composure through the end of the week.
The warm-up begins today. High temperatures will rise quickly this morning and climax near 80F…70s for the coast as winds shift south-southeast this afternoon.
The warmest days will be Thursday and Friday as thermometers climb into the lower and middle 80s. The coastal communities will be in the 70s on Thursday, and the South Coast/Cape/Islands will be the cooler spots in the 70s on Friday. Both days will be under mostly sunny skies.
Models are being fickle with this weekend’s forecast. The models are now hinting at a cold front slipping through the region Friday night into the early afternoon hours on Saturday. The front will be lacking moisture so we are expecting very little in terms of adding to the rain bucket. However, there will be a slight chance of a shower or two from Friday night through Saturday afternoon as the cold front crosses our path.
Early next week will be quiet to start, but another area of low pressure will bring showers by Tuesday night.
Tropical Update: T.S Nadine is no threat to the East Coast. ‘Nadine’ is forecast to become a hurricane later this week.
