Discussion

A major change in the overall weather pattern is about to occur and it will change the weather from warm and humid to much cooler and windy; however, we may have to deal with a couple more showers and thunderstorms before that happens. The stubborn low pressure system that has been sitting over the Midwest for the last several days will finally lift out of here by tomorrow ahead of a strong cold front that passes through the DC region on Friday. The initial push of colder air may cause some clouds and showers on Saturday and it actually could be cold enough in some of the highest elevations of the Northeast US (Poconos, Catskills) to see some snowflakes mixing in with the showers. Winds will also be quite noticeable on Saturday with gusts of 10-20 mph quite common from the north or northwest. A stiff breeze continues on Sunday, but the weather gets calmer and sunnier as we progress through the early part of next week.
