Here comes the sun

While dull, grey skies have been the norm for the last couple of days, sunshine is due to return for the weekend. A broad high pressure system will move very slowly across the Northeast United States over the next few days, bringing with it sunshine, calm winds, and moderate temperatures. In fact, almost the entire region east of the Mississippi River will be enjoying clear skies and relatively warm temperatures at least through Monday.

Of course, while the high pressure system will bring sunny skies to our region this weekend, it won’t stop darkness from coming early: Tonight’s sunset will be at 4:20 p.m. Fortunately for the non-nocturnal among us, the days will start to get longer again in just over a month.
