Discussion

Today will be another very warm day in the Mid-Atlantic and tonight will be quite mild for Strasburg's second to last start in DC and the Yanks/O's game in Baltimore, but big changes are on the way. A strong cold front is sweeping across the nation bringing the first real taste of fall to many locations and this front will usher in much cooler air to the Mid-Atlantic for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. An organized round of showers and thunderstorms will likely occur later tomorrow and tomorrow night in the Mid-Atlantic as the front plows eastward towards the east coast, and some of the rain that falls can be briefly heavy. Temperatures behind the front on Sunday will be noticeably cooler to go along with comfortable humidity levels and the cool air mass will stick around into mid-week. It'll get warmer again later next week as the cool air mass modifies slowly with time.

Elsewhere, nearly stationary Hurricane Leslie continues on a path that should take it just to the east of Bermuda this weekend and then it’ll accelerate and head to near the Atlantic Canadian province of Newfoundland by early next week. Rip currents are being caused by Hurricane Leslie up and down the east coast and that will continue through the weekend. Meanwhile, Hurricane Michael continues to grind away way out in the Atlantic, and it is not a threat to any land mass in the near term.
