First Alert Forecast: Dry with a slow warming trend this week

A high pressure system over New England and a low pressure system offshore will team up to bring cool and dry northeasterly breezes. Temperatures will moderate as we head through the workweek but the forecast remains high and dry.

SUNDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect mostly clear skies with lows in the upper 50's.  Some patchy fog may develop after midnight. 

THIS WEEK: An approaching cool front will run into a high pressure ridge along the U.S. east coast, which will remain in charge all week.  Look for mostly sunny to partly sunny days Monday through Friday.  Highs will warm from the upper 70's early in the week to the low 80's by mid week.  Overnight lows will moderate back into the 60's. 

TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST: Tropical depression eleven formed Saturday evening in the open Atlantic.  Another area of disturbed weather in the southwest Caribbean sea has a 40% chance of tropical cyclone development over the next 5 days. 

First Alert Meteorologists Gannon Medwick, Colin Hackman, Eric Davis, and Iisha Scott will keep you updated.
