Great Through the Weekend

A sprawling high pressure system centered over the Great Lakes will keep our weather just about perfect into the weekend.

Friday morning is starting off sunny for most, but a few areas of river valley fog exist across the Southern Tier. That fog should burn off quickly this morning.

Temperatures will rise quickly from the upper 40s and low 50s. Afternoon highs will be in the mid 70s, which is right on average for early June.

In addition to the sunny, dry weather, the wind will also be light from the north and humidity levels will be low.

This pattern will continue into the weekend as high pressure keeps unsettled weather at bay across the Southeastern United States.

The only real question in our forecast this weekend is how far north a deck of thin overcast will move. It seems like Saturday will still have plenty of sunshine, but that Sunday may have some of those clouds to filter the sunshine.

Winds Saturday will be from the northeast while Sunday’s winds will turn to the southeast. Temperatures will again be in the mid 70s Saturday with upper 70s and low 80s on Sunday. Morning lows both days will be comfortably in the low 50s.

Rain Returns Monday

Eventually, our high pressure system will slide off the coast of New England, opening our area up to a return of moisture.

The evolution of the rain Monday into early Tuesday is still uncertain. Rain will be possible at any time starting Monday, but the best chance seems to be late Monday into Monday night.

The atmosphere will be laden with tropical moisture. Any thunderstorms that develop will be capable of very heavy downpours. Severe weather does not seem to be a threat, but the flash flood potential will need to be monitored.

Conditions should dry out on Tuesday with no rain expected on Wednesday either. That will give us a stretch of 6 out of 7 days with very little to no precipitation. The end of next week looks more unsettled, but the details are sketchy at best this far out.

Temperatures will take a step back early next week. Highs on Monday look to be in the upper 60s with low and mid 60s Tuesday. Wednesday will bounce back to the upper 60s. It is uncertain whether Thursday or Friday will manage to reach 70 degrees, but there is a chance we go all week without getting that warm.
