Saturday’s Weather

High pressure will remain anchored to our north today while low pressure passes well south of New England. This setup will maintain a fair amount of mid to high-level clouds today with highs in the mid-50s with a little more sunshine for Mother’s Day.

Elevated Fire Danger

The dry stretch extends through the weekend and into early next week. Gradually warming temperatures and unseasonably dry air will result in relative humidity values dropping to between 20 and 30 percent some afternoons. This combined with winds gusting to 20 MPH at times some days could produce critical fire weather conditions into next week.
