Discussion

A storm with tropical moisture will consolidate along the SE US coast today and will then take a run up the east coast tomorrow. Rain should move into the region later tonight and it could continue heavily at times into part of Wednesday and a couple of strong thunderstorms could mix in. By Thursday, the coastal storm will head into New England and cooler air will move into the Mid-Atlantic on gusty west-to-northwest winds. The cooler weather will continue right into the weekend with high temperatures not far from 60 degrees.
