front will cross the area on Saturday, ending the precipitation, but bringing in more wind and much colder air. Dry weather and below normal temperatures are expected Sunday and Monday under high pressure.

A large high pressure system covering much of the eastern United States will provide dry weather to the region one more day. Rain in advance of the tropical system Nicole will reach the area by late Thursday and continue into Friday night. As the system weakens and moves northeast a cold front will cross the area on Saturday. Colder air and dry weather are expected behind this system for next week.
