Cooler and refreshing air mass arrives in wake of cold front as high pressure builds in


Today’s Weather Synopsis…

As the cold front continues to exit to our south and east this morning, clouds will give way to increasing amounts of sun into the late morning and afternoon as high pressure builds into the region from the Great Lakes. Temperatures will be much cooler than Wednesday with considerably lower and dropping humidity levels as well.

High pressure will continue to provide our region with pleasant, cooler, and less humid conditions into Friday and the beginning of the upcoming weekend, but will quickly become more unsettled into early next week. A warm front will approach later Saturday with an increase in clouds and a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm late, but chances will increase considerably Sunday and Monday as a series of low pressure systems and associated frontal boundaries move through.
