    Unsettled weather will continue through the weekend, forecasters say.

    The upper level low pressure system responsible for the cloudy and wet weather this week will weaken through tomorrow and Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

    But conditions won’t be as bad as earlier in the week.

    Cloudy skies are likely a given, and there will be some chances of showers, the service says. The best chance of showers will be between this afternoon and late tonight. Plan for areas of fog and drizzle throughout the day and tonight. 

    The onshore flow will continue through the weekend. 

    Some breaks in the clouds are possible later Sunday, but some light showers remain possible. Conditions will begin to improve on Monday.

    The forecast is mostly dry during next week, and temperatures will be seasonable, but a northeast flow will likely keep it breezy at the coast.

    The track of Hurricane Matthew, which is currently south of Jamaica, is highly uncertain. Forecasters won’t have a better handle on potential impacts, if any, on our region until Sunday at the earliest.
