    Maryland to Maine: Sunny All Weekend

    May 3, 2013; 4:46 AM ET

    Friday 7 AM

    With a high pressure area building and drifting slowly southwestward from Maine, sunny weather will dominate the weekend in the entire Northeast. It is a little unnerving to the forecaster to see such a vast area of winds coming from ocean to land and not predicting overcast weather. However, at least from Delaware northward, the flow is not over the ocean terribly long before coming ashore, and its origin is in eastern Canada, where it is very dry.

    Outside AccuWeather headquarters, a fine spring sunrise, the sunlight filtering through trees with budding leaves and flowers. This weather will be common in the Northeast all weekend.

      A cold front from eastern Canada will slide southward along the East coast between late Friday and the end of the weekend. For the area from Philadelphia to Boston, where temperatures will reach the summery 80s each day through Friday, it will mean a noticeable change to cooler weather.
