An area of high pressure will crest over the region today. This will allow summits to rebound to seasonable temperatures as winds remain relatively low and mostly sunny skies remain overhead. Overnight, the seasonable temperatures and relatively clear and calm conditions continue. Friday, the high slides offshore as a low slowly approaches from the Great Lakes. Temperatures will once again rebound to seasonable levels, however winds will be gradually increasing and high and mid-level clouds will slowly spread in for the afternoon.
