Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 11:36 am

Clouds will move out through today and into tonight in the North Country, so we can expect mostly sunny skies and warmer than average temperatures for the next few days.

High clouds can be expected this afternoon and tonight, especially across the Adirondacks as rain tracks to the south of us.

The National Weather Service predicts several days of mostly clear skies and above average temperatures beginning tomorrow and likely lasting through Saturday.

The warmest days are expected Friday and Saturday with high temperatures in the St. Lawrence Valley into the lower 70s.

A slow-moving front approaching from the west brings the next chance for rain Saturday night into Sunday
