After a chilly start to Friday morning, the rest of the day will consist of mostly sunny skies. Temperatures should be warmer with most areas expected to reach the low to mid 60s (more seasonable for this time of the year). Winds will turn out of the south at 5-10 mph.

Mid to high level clouds will begin to move into the region Friday night into Saturday associated with the remnants of Ian. High pressure will be protecting us so that clouds will be the only impact we see. Due to the filtered sunshine on Saturday, highs have been lowered a few degrees, but overall temperatures will be the warmest of the extended forecast reaching the mid to upper 60s. A cold front will cross the region Saturday night into Sunday morning. This will not bring any rain, but it will bring cooler conditions.

A secondary Canadian high pressure will be moving into the region on Sunday. This will bring cooler air back to the region as highs by Sunday into early next week are expected to be in the 50s and low 60s. Conditions will remain dry with mostly sunny skies. Sunday night into Monday morning will be another potential for frost. This time around, it does appear most of the region, including Downeast areas, will have lows in the 30s and will see the threat of the first widespread frost of the season.
