Discussion

A taste of summer is in store to begin the week as temperatures will explode today to the mid-to-upper 80’s. This will be the warmest day of the week, however, as a cool front slips through by tomorrow morning and high temperatures drop to the mid-to-upper 70’s on Tuesday and then the mid 60’s on Wednesday. As far as precipitation is concerned, it has been quite dry around here for the last several weeks. There are, however, signs for a potentially decent rain event sometime later this weekend along the Mid-Atlantic coast that could be followed by more chilly weather.
