Discussion

High pressure over the Northeast US will stay in control today, but a warm frontal system will arrive tonight increasing the chance for scattered showers and maybe an isolated thunderstorm. That same front will stall out nearby on Friday and the result will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms both tomorrow and tomorrow night. The overall pattern will turn hotter this weekend as a “Bermuda-high” sets up over the western Atlantic Ocean. Temperatures could top out well up in the 90’s later this weekend and early next week with the most oppressive days likely being Sunday and Monday. It’ll be humid as well during this coming hot stretch with the daily chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms.
