High pressure will crest over the region today providing fair skies, a return to seasonable temperatures, and dampening winds. Overnight the high slides offshore as an area of low pressure slowly approaches from the west. A warm front stretching from the low will move along the Canadian border overnight, spreading clouds in during the night and into Friday. A return flow on the backside of the high will keep temperatures mild overnight and then allow for slightly above normal readings for Saturday. However, as the region transitions from high to low pressure, winds will gradually be back on the increase.
