The upper level low that we've been mentioning for almost a week now is still hanging out over the Canadian Maritimes and is still driving the weather over the northeastern US. Today that low is pushing some cool weather and a couple of weak disturbances our way. That will result in a high in the lower 60s under mostly cloudy skies and a few lucky people might even see a brief rain shower. Look for the wind to pick up this afternoon as a Midwest transplant surface high begins to put the squeeze on the lingering low pressure.

Clear skies will return tomorrow and the temperature should return to the near-normal mid 60s in the afternoon. More dry weather is expected on Wednesday when we could warm to the lower 70s.

The forecast details for later in the week are still fuzzy but it does look like there will be a significant circulation change Thursday or Friday. A much larger disturbance is expected to drop down out of Canada and pass south of the city on Thursday. The exact path of that storm will determine how much rain, if any, we get toward the end of the week. More importantly, that storm will push the old upper-level low away and usher in an era of good feelings and warmer weather. By the end of the weekend we should start seeing daily highs consistently reaching the 70s.
