A stagnant blocking pattern in upper atmosphere will keep the weather mainly quiet and warm through the weekend. The only exception to this may be saturday night as a cold front drops out of Canada and possibly triggers a few showers and thunderstorms. Numerical guidance hints at a breakdown of the pattern which could allow for better chances for showers and thunderstorms early next week.
