Discussion

High pressure off the east coast will expand westward over the next few days and this will have two effects on the region: 1) an increase in temperatures and 2) a decrease in the rainfall activity. As the high expands inland from off of the east coast, the persistent southerly flow of tropical air along the east coast will finally diminish and this will reduce the numerous showers and thunderstorms of recent days to a widely scattered variety. Temperatures will climb to near or just above 90 degrees late this week and during the weekend as well.
