Skies will remain mostly clear this evening, then clouds will increase again later tonight, as low-moisture increasing underneath an inversion. Some areas of patchy fog and drizzle could also be around again early tomorrow morning. Low temperatures tonight will drop into the 50s over most region. Closer to 60 for NYC metro and urban areas.

More clouds than sunshine is likely tomorrow, as cold front from approaches from the west.  Some showers will likely be over the region by tomorrow afternoon or night. However, some subsidence over region will keep showers light and scattered over the region. So Saturday doesn’t look like a complete washout and not everyone will see rain. The best chance for more showers will be coastal areas, with more lift and moisture pooling along the cold front, especially by tomorrow night. The cold front will move through early on Sunday, with cooler, drier northwesterly winds. More sunshine is in store on Sunday with high temperatures in the middle to upper 60s.
