Discussion

Strong low pressure will pull away from the region today, but there will still enough instability in the atmosphere for lingering showers before genuine clearing takes place in the overnight hours. Severe weather is not a threat today as it was TWICE on Thursday with one strong line of storms passing through the region in the mid-to-late morning hours and then a second batch of severe storms slammed the region late in the afternoon/early evening and a tornado was reported in Montgomery County, MD with that second set of storms.

Saturday promises to be a pleasant day in the Mid-Atlantic region with plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures and humidity. Clouds will increase on Sunday and the early part of next week will likely become unsettled once again with the chance for some shower and thunderstorm activity from later Sunday right through Tuesday.
