    High pressure is set to dominate our weather pattern this weekend, bringing drier, more comfortable air to the region.

    The wedge of drier air will continue to surge southward throughout the day, which will contend with a veil of clouds racing in from New York state.

    Highs today will rise comfortably into the low 80s south, with the upper 70s expected north of the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border. It will be cool and a bit crisp tonight as dry air settles into much of New England, with some patchy valley fog by morning. Lows will dip into the upper 50s outside the Springfield and Boston metro areas, with the mid 60s expected elsewhere.

    We dodge a bullet as a complex coastal storm misses to our south, the majority of heavy rain will affect those heading to the Cape and the Islands. The tradeoff will be thicker clouds and scattered showers, as highs Saturday struggle to reach the upper 70s.
