Discussion

The big weather story this week will be the strong cold frontal passage on Wednesday that will pave the way for a true taste of fall for the end of the week. High temperatures by the end of the week will struggle to escape the 60’s and it is not out of the question that we have our first nighttime lows in the 40’s. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Nate is no longer a threat to the US as it moved over Mexico and Tropical Storm Maria continues to take a track that will turn away from the east coast.  In other words, no tropical troubles here this week in the Mid-Atlantic - finally.
