Unseasonably warm, humid weekend in Lancaster; remnants of Hurricane Nate arriving Monday

We do have a little better chance to see some scattered showers during the day. A weak front will bring rain chances across the northwestern counties this morning, along with a drop in temperatures this afternoon.

Luckily it looks like the steady and perhaps heavy rain will hold off until Sunday night or Monday as the remnants of Tropical Storm Nate head in our direction. Last week, the area considered drier than average doubled across the northeast with almost 90 percent of MA having drier-than-average conditions.

The first wave of showers and a few storms arrive this evening and tonight.

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 44.

Sunday: Sun and clouds, humid, isolated shower. Expect a mix of clouds and sunshine on a warm and sticky Saturday, with highs likely falling just a few degrees short of record highs for the date.

Fair skies and pleasant temperatures are expected for Saturday night. Warm and dry weather holds for Monday with highs near 90. High: upper 70s - near 80 degrees. Low: 70. High: 94. Highs are going to be above average with most areas in the mid to upper-80's, as the wedge of high pressure to the north breaks down. Highs will end up in the mid 70s on Monday. A few 80-degree readings over interior southern ME are possible. From there, Nate will emerge in the very warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where it is forecast to strengthen into at least a Category 1 hurricane.

Friday Night: Mainly clear. High: mid-upper 70s. Cooler, drier air will be moving into the Midlands behind the front.

Starting on Saturday over the weekend, we could see some rain come back into the forecast.

Saturday: Sunny with highs in the mid to upper 60's with SW winds at 25-35 miles per hour in the afternoon.
