    The two weather systems that brought rain and clouds yesterday is pushing off shore today. Parts of southern and eastern New England are still rather humid with patchy clouds this morning. We will see brighter and drier weather this afternoon.

    High pressure from the Midwest should gradually turn our wind out toward the ocean, from the west and northwest at 10-20 miles per hour.

    With that offshore breeze the temperatures at the beach rise well into the 80s this afternoon.

    For the lakes and mountains, there are many fair-weather clouds, with a chance of the few showers and a possible thunderstorm in central and eastern Maine.

    The sky should clear this evening for a comfortable sleeping night, low temperature in the 60s south and 50s north.

    Tomorrow should be mostly sunny with temperatures in the 80s and low to moderate humidity.

    On Tuesday, we have another situation with a front from Canada moving in from the north and also a wave of low-pressure off the south coast.

    This will bring in clouds have a chance for showers and thunderstorms most of Tuesday, especially during afternoon temperatures in the low 80s.

    There is potential for some damaging wind gusts and torrential downpours in any localized thunderstorms.

    Less humid weather comes back Wednesday with a return to more sunshine than clouds. Temperatures will be so much cooler north with highs in the 70s while we are still 80 degrees+ for the south.

    It's a fairly cool high-pressure system with possible record low temperatures in the state of Maine Wednesday night.

    High pressure from Canada will move into the Gulf of Maine Thursday with increasing clouds and a temperature near 80 degrees.

    A warm front over New York may have low-pressure develop along interstate 90, that could mean heavy rain for Thursday night and Friday with cooler air. Some spots may be stuck in the 60s Friday.

    The early call for next weekend is for slow drying, warming, and brightening.

    Also on the weather map, tropical depression number eight has formed well east of Florida, and is expected to become a tropical storm and cut between Bermuda and Nantucket Wednesday and Thursday.
