MORE CLOUDS AND SOME WET WEATHER
Weather has been quite pleasant here in the northeast. The only real change you'll notice today will be an overall increase in clouds. I don't anticipate any wet weather to end the week and highs will again make it back into the 60s. Low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will remain "cut off" from the jet stream resulting in a slow moving and at times unsettle weather pattern here in the northeast. It still looks like the heaviest rainfall will remain south of our area but some wet weather in the form of rain and drizzle should arrive over the weekend and into early next week. Based on today's forecast, Saturday is looking cloudy with only the chance for showers. A steadier rain may be in the cards by Saturday evening into Saturday night. The timing is still uncertain. Sunday still looks to be the best half of the weekend but even that day should be mainly cloudy and a shower or period of drizzle can't be ruled out. More wet weather should be with us to start out the work week followed by improvement by mid-week. After that the track of hurricane Matthew will need to be watched as some forecast modeling suggests the storm will curve north and may effect the East Coast of the US. Stay tuned.
