Forecast Discussion

High pressure will begin sliding to our south today, with a warmer and more unstable air mass building into the region by tomorrow. For today, the majority of the day should be spent in the clear across the higher summits, with any fog most likely occurring during the early morning hours and again towards sunset. A weak upper level disturbance will also pass by to our north today, with an isolated shower not out of the question this afternoon. Overnight temperatures will remain more mild than the previous night, with the higher summits experiencing periodic fog and breezy west winds. Saturday increasing humidity and an approaching area of low pressure will increase the chances for afternoon showers, with the higher summits trending towards becoming firmly in the clouds by the end of the day. Several areas of low pressure will track across New England Sunday into the start of the workweek, with showers, thunderstorms, and heavy rain possible.
