Dry and milder with some sunshine to begin the weekend, but a few showers return late


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

The weekend will begin with much drier weather and a return to some sunshine as coastal low pressure continues to depart into the Canadian Maritimes and high pressure briefly builds in. A weak frontal boundary will move through tonight into early Sunday with an increase in clouds and a few scattered showers possible, especially across northern areas.

After a breezy and seasonably cool end to the weekend on Sunday, pleasant and milder weather will return for the beginning of the workweek with even warmer temperatures expected on Tuesday as a weak warm front crosses northeast through the region.
