The week ahead: The return of warmth

Jason Samenow @ 8:00 AM

After a chilly weekend and period of generally below average temperatures, we finally catch a break this week -- with temperatures most days reaching well into the 60s.


Forecast Confidence: HighPartly sunny, warmer. As high pressure moves off the coast of New England and low pressure develops over Louisiana, we'll have a mix of sun and clouds, with high temperatures reaching near 60 under light southerly winds. Overnight, clouds will increase with lows 44-48 (suburbs-city).

Forecast Confidence: MediumAfternoon rain?. As low pressure approaches from the southeast, expect light rain to develop during the afternoon -- probably late (although the timing is uncertain and it may hold off until night). Clouds will hold down high temperatures in the mid to high 50s. Overnight, occasional light rain will continue, probably diminishing by morning, with lows in the upper 40s.


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighGradual clearing, mild. As low pressure gradually slides towards Southeast coast, sunshine will probably emerge during the afternoon. With a warm airmass in place, expect highs in the mid 60s. Overnight, it will be partly cloudy, with lows 42-48 (suburbs-city)


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighPartly cloudy, mild. A weak cold front will move through late in the day, but is unlikely to produce any rain. Instead, we should have partly cloudy skies and seasonably warm temperatures in the mid to high 60s. Overnight, it should be mostly clear with lows 43-49 (suburbs-city).


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighMostly sunny, warm. High pressure will begin building in from the northwest. But with a large ridge over much of eastern North America, the airmass will be mild, and we should expect mostly sunny skies with highs near 70.


Forecast Confidence: MediumMostly sunny, mild. High pressure over Ontario will nose its way down the East Coast. With a warm airmass remaining overhead, high temperatures should near 70 under partly to mostly sunny skies. Overnight, it should be partly cloudy, with lows 44-50 (suburbs-city).


Forecast Confidence: MediumSome increase in clouds -- still mild. A cold front will likely move through the region, increasing cloud cover. There could be a shower (20% chance) -- but expect generally dry conditions with highs in the low to mid 60s.
