Pleasant and seasonable weather continues as weak high pressure briefly settles over region

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

Weak high pressure will bring quiet and seasonable conditions to the region today with mainly dry weather, but the pattern will become rather unsettled into late week as a cut-off low pressure system moves out of the Great Lakes region and meanders over the eastern states for the next several days.

This system will promote the chance for clouds and scattered showers at times from Thursday into the upcoming weekend as disturbances rotate about the upper low, but the exact track and evolution of the system remains a bit uncertain at this time so the forecast has low confidence. The actual center of the low will track well south and west of the region, but an increasingly moist onshore flow into the region will likely promote the unsettled conditions until the upper level low finally moves over our region into early next week.
