Discussion

A frontal system passed through the region yesterday and has stalled out near the area at the same time high pressure builds across New England. This stalled out frontal system will keep things unsettled over the next couple of days with the constant threat for showers and thunderstorms although much of the time will be rain-free. One band of showers is dropping southeast from southern Pennsylvania this morning and it is likely to move across the DC region during the mid-day and afternoon hours. It’ll turn slightly cooler over the weekend as the New England high pressure influences the region and the threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue.
