An unsettled pattern, owing to the presence of a persistent upper level trough over the Northeast, will continue through the end of the week. Steady and heavy rain won’t be a threat, but the potential for isolated showers and clouds will remain in the forecast through the first half of the weekend. The upper level trough is in no rush to leave, as it meanders over the Northeast United States. Small disturbances (shortwaves) will rotate around it, kicking off clouds and isolated showers at times on both Friday and Saturday. Some more sun should find its way through the clouds each day, but temperatures will cool off over time as well..with high temperatures falling into the upper 30’s low 40’s by later this weekend. Low temperatures on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights should be fairly uniform, in the upper 20’s inland to the low to mid 30’s near the coast and in the city. No periods of steady or heavy rain are expected, though, so overall it should average out to be a fair end of the week and weekend. The official forecast is below…

Friday: Mostly cloudy, with high temperatures in the mid to upper 40’s near the coast, and colder inland (upper 30’s to low 40’s). Northwest winds around 10 miles per hour.

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy, with low temperatures in the upper 20’s to lower 40’s, warmer near the coast and in the city. Northwest winds around 10 miles per hour.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, with a slight chance of showers in the afternoon. High temperatures in the middle 40’s. Northwest winds around 10 miles per hour.
