    Dry and Warmer in the Northeast Through Late Week

    Play video The above video details the forecast for the Northeast.

    While parts of the western U.S. will get a taste of winter this week, the weather across the Northeast will be typical of early fall and ideal for outdoor activities.

    High pressure will remain in place through the rest of this week and into the weekend.

    This feature will keep any rain-producing weather systems out of the region and allow for plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures.

    The first full day of fall brought rather cool weather to some areas, as highs from upstate New York to Maine were only in the 40s and 50s. The rest of the region climbed into the upper 50s and 60s.

    There will be a gradual warming trend as the week progresses. The areas that only reached the 50s and 60s early in the week will warm into the 60s and 70s by the end of the week.

    The nights and early mornings will have a cool, autumnal feel to them, especially in areas away from the big cities.

    With mainly clear skies and light winds at night, patchy fog will develop and linger a short time past sunrise.

    The fog will mainly form in areas away from larger metropolitan locations. Morning commuters in outlying and rural areas should be prepared for reduced visibility in spots.

    This dry weather pattern will likely persist into the weekend, although the temperature trend will plateau.

    Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be very close to the late-week temperatures. In addition, humidity levels will remain rather low.

    This will be quite different from last weekend, which featured cloudy and damp conditions, along with cooling temperatures as a cold front moved through the region.
