A high pressure system over the Great Lakes and a low pressure system offshore will team up to bring cool and dry northeast breezes to the area into the weekend. Rain chances will stay in the very low 0 to 10% range most of the time.
FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect partly cloudy skies. The risk of a shower will stay near 0%. Temperatures will be in the 60s for the evening hours before falling to the upper 50s and lower 60s late at night. Winds: northeast around 10mph.
SATURDAY FORECAST: Expect continued partly cloudy skies, cool northeast breezes of 10 to 20mph, rain chances near 0%, and high temperatures mainly in the upper 70s. Sunrise is near 7am and sunset is near 7pm.
BEACH / BOAT HAZARDS FOR SATURDAY: A moderate risk of rip currents exists for east-facing beaches. The National Weather Service has issued a Small Craft Advisory for the offshore waters (winds: northeast 20kts, waves: up to around 6ft).
EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Sunday will also likely have a high temperature in the upper 70s. Next week: daily highs may swell to the 80s. Any rain showers will likely stay very isolated through the period - except for perhaps next Friday as a front approaches.
TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST: A large area of unsettled weather around 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles may slowly develop into a tropical depression in the next two to four days as it heads northwest - over open Atlantic water.
