It’s taken some extra time for the drier air aloft to scrub the excess cloudiness from our sky, but the process is underway and the clearing trend will stretch into the late-night hours.  Rain chances are basically nil this evening, dropping to zero by Saturday as the first autumn air mass of the season enters the region.  Northeasterly winds will set up late tonight and last through the weekend, transporting the cooler and drier air.  A few scattered clouds are possible to the east with Atlantic moisture, but most areas will experience abundant sunshine Friday through Sunday.  Lows tonight will response to the cooling by falling into the low and mid 60s.  Highs Friday will be limited to the middle 80s, close to average.  Saturday and Sunday mornings will start cool in the 60° range, as daytime temps rise to the mild low and mid 80s with an overall lack of moisture and mugginess.
