Discussion

Just what the doctor ordered - a break from the hot and dry weather with cool and damp conditions for a couple of days and some much needed soaking rain. Low pressure will ride along a stalled out frontal system to bring us occasional showers today and tonight although much of the time will be rain-free. There can also be a thunderstorm or two mixed in and some of the rain will be heavy at times. An ocean flow of air (ie NE wind) has developed here on the north side of this low pressure system and temperatures will be considerably cooler today compared to recent days with highs confined to near 70 degrees. High pressure will slowly build back into the Mid-Atlantic region by later tomorrow and there will some gradual clearing as a result during the late afternoon hours. Sunday promises to be a nicer day than Saturday with sunshine and still rather pleasant temperatures and humidity values. Monday and Tuesday will see a return of heat and humidity, but a cool front passes through by Wednesday, ushering in more comfortable air for the mid-week.
