High pressure shifting from the North Country southeastward will support increasing southwesterly flow over our forecast area, resulting in a warming trend through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Highs today will be around 74 with sunny skies, forecasters say. An overnight low of 50 degrees is expected.

Tuesday will see temps top out around 81, with winds of 9 to 14 mph and gusts as high as 24 mph, the serve says.

A weak cold frontal passage Wednesday will bring some rain shows and possibly a few thunderstorms through the day, NWS says.

A few lingering showers will remain through the end of the work week as the weather pattern remains unsettled, but the weekend looks dry and warm as ridging builds in aloft, the service says.
