Today’s Weather Synopsis…

Some showers will linger across portions of the region today as a cold front slowly sags south of the region and low pressure hangs out to our east with some moisture remaining behind the front. Drier conditions will gradually filter into the region by tonight as high pressure builds into the region and clouds erode allowing for some areas of fog to form by morning.

High pressure will remain in control with dry conditions through the upcoming weekend, along with typical summer warmth for this time of year. High pressure will begin to slide offshore by early next week with a slightly warmer return flow and increasing amounts of humidity ahead of a slow-moving cold front that will bring more unsettled conditions through the middle of next week.
