Friday 6:30pm. A ridge of high pressure approaching form the west is expected to crest over the Island early Saturday morning then slide off to the east. The southerly winds behind this ridge will allow temperatures to once again climb to well above normal for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with increasing humidities as well. A cold front will approach from the west later Tuesday bringing a threat of showers and Thundershowers. Much cooler air expected to invade the region beginning on Wednesday. Another trough of low pressure will cross the area on Thursday and Friday bringing another threat of showers.
