This is how the weekend's nice weather looked from space in this image taken by the NASA Terra satellite. Most of the area is under clear skies, with just a few small cumulus having developed along the Long Island sea breeze boundary.

A pretty cool shot. This is how the weekend’s nice weather looked from space in this image taken by the NASA Terra satellite. Most of the area was under clear skies, with just a few small cumulus having developed along the Long Island sea breeze boundary. For the next few days, however, there will be clouds and some showers. New York City is clearly visible, but can you find Stamford, Bridgeport and New Haven?

We got some showers in the forecast for the next few days.

Not a total washout, but a decent chance of rain through mid-week.

“High pressure over the Northeast will drift to the Carolinas and settle there for several days,” the National Weather Service says. “It will bring surges of increasingly warm and humid air into the region, each accompanied by a period of showers or thunderstorms. The first of these will occur today. The next will be Wednesday into Thursday. By week’s end, high pressure will be anchored along the Atlantic Seaboard, bringing warm and humid weather to the region … along with scattered thunderstorms.”

Here’s the forecast:

Today: Scattered showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 2pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 82. Southwest wind 7 to 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Tonight: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 3am, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3am. Cloudy, with a low around 68. Southwest wind 3 to 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Tuesday: A slight chance of showers before 9am, then a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 85. Calm wind becoming southwest around 6 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Tuesday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 68. South wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Wednesday: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after noon. Cloudy, with a high near 84. Light and variable wind becoming southwest 5 to 8 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
