MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, BREEZY CONDITIONS AND COOL TO MILD WEATHER WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS

Mostly cloudy, breezy and cool to mild today with a 60% chance of showers or thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in low-70's.. Look for northeast winds at 10-20 mph. It will be partly cloudy and cool tonight with a 20% chance of showers early. Low temperatures will be in the low-60's. Expect northeast winds at 10-15 mph. Friday should bring partly cloudy skies and somewhat milder conditions. High temperatures will range from the mid-70's on the Island to the upper-70's inland. Expect northeast winds at 10-15 mph. It will be partly to mostly cloudy and mild on Saturday. Winds will be from the east at 5-10 mph. High temperatures will be in the upper-70's.

SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK:

Cloudy skies and a chance of rain will appear today as a weak upper-level disturbance tracks through the area. Northeast winds will continue as high pressure at the surface ridges in from the northeast. Warmer temperatures should appear over the weekend into next week.

NATIONAL OUTLOOK

At the surface, a large high pressure ridge continues to prevail from New England southwest into the Gulf of Mexico. A stationary frontal boundary persists from near the Yucatan eastward across south Florida into the Atlantic. To our north, a cold front continues moving slowly south from New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle across the eastern Plains to a low in southeast Minnesota. Low pressure also persists over Colorado and Utah with a stationary frontal boundary located over Montana and western Canada. At the upper-levels a slightly more zonal west to east pattern exists with weak low pressure trough developing over the Plains and a high pressure ridge developing over the western third of the country.

LOCAL OUTLOOK

Cool, cloudy weather today with a chance of rain will slowly give way to milder conditions for this weekend. Clouds will decrease on Friday, but should increase some over the weekend with another chance at rain by Sunday as a second upper-level disturbance moves east across the center of the country. Warmer conditions are likely next week as an upper-level high pressure ridge moves into the region.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:

The Tropical Atlantic Basin is quiet and tropical cyclone development not expected over the next 48-hours.
