High pressure will build across the Great Lakes to the Northeast this weekend, bringing plenty of sunshine. A light northeasterly flow kept the humidity on the pleasant side, and afternoon readings topped out in the seasonal low to mid-80s.

After a comfortable night, winds turn southerly on Sunday, raising the humidity and temperature into the upper 80s, with some puffy clouds. An isolated shower or storm could develop over the western part of the state toward evening.

The next chance for widespread showers and storms will arrive Monday afternoon and linger into Tuesday ahead of a cold front.

A pleasantly cool autumn-like surge of air from central Canada will bring comfortable temperatures to begin the month of September, heading into Labor Day weekend.
