Saturday the pick day for the weekend as clouds increase Sunday

Well folks, we made it — another weekend is here. Temperatures will remain at or a little below normal, particularly on Saturday, as cooler and drier air pushes into the area from the north thanks to high pressure pushing down the Eastern Seaboard into the Carolinas. We’ll start Saturday in the 30s, with wind chills feeling a few degrees cooler, and only head to about 55-56° or so in the afternoon despite full sunshine. (Northeast winds will do that to you.)

Clouds increase during the day on Sunday as high pressure departs and moisture filters back into the area. We could see some showers late in the day into Monday as a warm front lifts north, but right now I expect much of Sunday to remain dry. Temperatures will run a little warmer, around 60° in the afternoon.

Overall, I’d say Saturday is definitely the better of the two days if you have outdoor plans despite the slightly cooler temperatures! Have a good weekend, everyone.
