Discussion

A wild weather day is in store for much of the Mid-Atlantic region today with heavy rain likely and also the threat for a severe weather event; especially, from central New Jersey southward to the DC metro region and the Delmarva Peninsula as multiple severe weather ingredients are coming together in the atmosphere. An unusually strong low pressure system will cross Pennsylvania today and reach the Mid-Atlantic coastline later this evening. From there, this strong low will ride northeast along the New England coastline early Friday in much the same fashion as a wintertime nor’easter. Rainfall around here today could end up being in the 1-3 inch range and, given the saturated grounds, flash flooding could be the result in many locations. Any thunderstorm that forms later today can produce damaging wind gusts, and hail. A little improvement occurs on Friday as the storm pulls away from the region although a few residual showers are possible, and then high pressure will generate nice conditions around here on Saturday.
