Discussion

A strong cold front will approach the region late Friday and it will bring a band of showers and thunderstorms into the Mid-Atlantic region and some of the rain is likely to be heavy tomorrow night. The front pulls off the east coast early Saturday and cooler air will return to the region with highs on Saturday some 15 degrees cooler than the expected highs on Friday. High pressure will build across the region this weekend, but then a coastal low pressure system will make an attempt to ride up the east coast early next week possibly spreading more showers into the region by Tuesday. Another strong cold front will approach from the west at mid-week bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms to the east coast later Wednesday or Thursday.
