Conditions slow to improve as high pressure begins to build south into the region


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

An upper level low will slowly lessen its influence on our region today with clouds and a few isolated showers or drizzle this morning gradually tapering off with some breaks developing from northeast to southwest as the day progresses. High pressure will then finally build into the region tonight with drier weather and clearing skies. Temperatures will also begin to moderate through the weekend, returning to near seasonable levels by Sunday with plenty of sunshine and dry weather expected.

The high pressure will settle over the eastern seaboard for several days to start the new workweek with warmer temperatures becoming above average for late August through mid-week. Unsettled conditions will eventually return into late week as a frontal boundary approaches.
