Discussion

Early morning low clouds and fog will give way once again to sunshine and very warm conditions this afternoon, but the overall weather pattern will change noticeably this weekend. Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Saturday as a cooling trend begins, and more showers are likely on Sunday as well as a storm develops near the Mid-Atlantic coast. It is probable that, at some point during the weekend, the rain falls quite heavily - which has not happened around here in several days. Temperatures on Saturday will reach the upper 60's, but then will be confined to the low 60’s on Sunday thanks to a strengthening ocean flow of air. It’ll turn milder on Monday, but then a strong cold front will pass through on Monday night and it’ll usher in some of the coolest, Canadian air that we’ve had in awhile around here in the Mid-Atlantic. In fact, temperatures on Tuesday will be confined to near 60 degrees for highs along with a stiff cool NW breeze, and lows on Monday night and Tuesday night could fall into the 30's.
