More humidity, clouds, and rain

After a pause early in the week, clouds and rain are back on the menu. Currently, a low pressure system is quickly surging east after sparking heavy rain and severe weather in the Lower Mississippi River Valley yesterday. The storm system is pushing a warm front northwards through New England today, evicting the recent cool, dry air mass and replacing it with much warmer, more humid air. High temperatures could surge into the mid 60s °F tomorrow and Saturday before the low pressure finally drags its cold front through the region on Sunday, bringing back cool, dry, and sunny weather. During the warmth and humidity, expect several occasionally heavy rounds of rain today through Saturday, and perhaps brisk winds Saturday morning as a weak nor’easter races up the east coast along the cold front. After the front, next week will begin pleasantly under high pressure before unsettled weather again quickly replaces it.
