Forecast: Dry Weather Continues, But Showers Start The Weekend

You've probably seen a pattern over the past few days where there's fog in the morning, which then burns off and leaves us with an absolutely gorgeous late morning into the rest of the afternoon. Once again, we'll be contending with the fog this morning. Some areas will take longer than others for the sun to return.

The past few days has also seen places like Boston much cooler than inland areas. There was nearly a 30-degree difference between the city and places as many miles west yesterday afternoon. This was because of an easterly wind. Today will be a little bit different because the wind will come from more of a southerly direction and that means even the city should get into the 70s.

There may be a couple of showers tonight as a funnel system comes through but they would be minor and most of us stay dry.

Tomorrow is another very nice day but it is cooler with temperature staying in the 60s.

Our nice stretch of weather runs out on Saturday with a warm front approaching. Showers over take the region Saturday and may continue into Saturday night.

The question for Mother's Day is how far south the frontal system will push. Right now I'm thinking we will see an improving weather forecast throughout the day and not much, if any, precipitation. This a change from earlier in the week when Saturday looked like the better day.

Next week will be pleasant without much in the way of precipitation and a warming trend. We may see a return to temperatures in the 80s during the middle part of the week.
