Discussion: The weak cold front that moved through our forecast area late yesterday, is moving slowly offshore. Behind, high pressure builds in and gives us pleasant weather Sunday through Tuesday. By later on Tuesday night, showers may return, as another cold front moves through the area sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday. Thursday should see a return to dry weather. Still no summer time heat expected this week, but temperatures will be more near seasonal levels……One fly in the ointment for Sunday, an upper level disturbance has to move through southern New England sometime later in the day. This could trigger a few showers. Also, expect low clouds and fog this morning, especially along coastal locations. Slowly this will burn off and sunshine does take over for the afternoon.
