355 PM EDT FRI MAR 24 2017  
 
HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE FARTHER OFFSHORE TONIGHT BEHIND WHICH A  
SOUTHWEST FLOW OF MILDER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD INTO SOUTHERN  
NEW ENGLAND. UNDER CLOUDY SKIES TONIGHT, LOWS WILL ONLY FALL BACK  
INTO THE MID 30S TO LOW 40S.  
 
ON SATURDAY, A COLD FRONT WILL DROP SOUTH ACROSS OUR REGION AHEAD OF  
A CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE AREA BUILDING OVER NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND.  
AHEAD AND ALONG THIS COLD FRONT WILL BE THE CHANCE FOR RAIN.  
TEMPERATURES WILL TOP OUT EARLY SATURDAY IN THE MID 40S TO AROUND 50  
DEGREES BEFORE A WIND SHIFT OUT OF THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST SHUTS OFF  
THE FLOW OF MILDER AIR.  
 
THE COLD FRONT WILL STALL JUST SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND SATURDAY NIGHT,  
WHEN THERE WILL BE A LULL IN THE ACTION AS HIGH PRESSURE NOSES DOWN  
ACROSS OUR REGION. UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, TEMPERATURES WILL FALL  
INTO THE MID 20S TO MID 30S.  
 
THE STALLED COLD FRONT WILL BEGIN TO LIFT NORTHWARD AS A WARM FRONT  
SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT WHICH COULD RESULT IN A PERIOD OF LIGHT  
RAIN. BUT COLD AIR DRAINING SOUTH INTO INTERIOR VALLEYS, COULD  
PRODUCE SCATTERED FREEZING RAIN.  
 
A STORM SYSTEM WILL FINALLY MOVE THROUGH OUR REGION EARLY NEXT WEEK,  
BUT NOT BEFORE MORE CHANCES FOR RAIN MONDAY AND TUESDAY. CLEARING  
AND DRYING CONDITIONS FOLLOW ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, THEN THERE  
THERE IS ANOTHER CHANCE FOR RAIN ON FRIDAY.
