High pressure will build in from the west today before quickly moving offshore, with the higher summits clearing out of the fog and temperatures rebounding back to near freezing over the next 36 hours. Winds will slowly abate as the day goes on, with more clouds during the afternoon as an area of low pressure approaches from the Great Lakes. Low pressure will move to near Long Island overnight and begin to strengthen, with strong high pressure upstream of the storm preventing much in the way of forward movement. A few mixed precipitation showers will be possible after midnight as the higher summits begin to feel the effects of the low. Tomorrow mixed precipitation showers will become more likely as the morning goes on, with a southerly flow ahead of the storm allowing temperatures to rise just above freezing by the afternoon and likely changing precipitation over to rain. Low pressure will very slowly move northeast through the Gulf of Maine over the next several days, with heavy rain possible through Friday.
