Dry weather will remain across the Northeast through at least the weekend and even longer for residents of New England.
In addition to the sunshine and dry weather, fall-like temperatures will continue across the region; making major cities like Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York City feel more like mid-September rather than mid-August.
Tropical moisture will begin to make its way up the East Coast over the weekend; however, high pressure over New England will make it difficult for any showers or storms to advance north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
With the high pressure keeping the showers at bay, New England will experience a partly to mostly sunny and dry weekend, providing great conditions for cookouts, a round of golf and other outdoor activities.
Showers will return to the I-95 corridor early next week as the moisture from the south manages to push northward into Pennsylvania and southern New York.

This dry weather is welcome across much of the region as this summer has been one of the wettest summers on record for several cities, including Philadelphia. With autumn still a few weeks away, any additional rainfall will only add to these record rainfall totals.
The City of Brotherly Love had its wettest day ever on record this summer, with 8.02 inches of rain falling on July 28. This led to major flash flooding both in and around the city.
Philadelphia is also nearing their normal precipitation amount for the entire year, needing only 1.45 inches to surpass their yearly average. With showers and storms in the forecast, they might receive this much before the end of August.
