Discussion

High pressure responsible for our spectacular weather of the past couple of days has moved off the east coast and this has opened the door for inclement weather to return to the Mid-Atlantic region. A slow-moving warm front is now approaching the Mid-Atlantic region and the result will be unsettled weather conditions from later today through tomorrow with occasional showers and possibly a couple of thunderstorms. The unsettled weather conditions will continue on Thursday and Friday as well. We'll be in the warm sector on Thursday so temperatures will be higher, but the threat for more showers and thunderstorms will continue. Then a weak cool front will approach the region on Friday with even more showers and thunderstorms likely in the region. There is certainly the chance for some heavy rain to get involved in this unsettled weather pattern between Wednesday and Friday night. Genuine clearing won’t arrive here until the weekend following the passage of another strong cool front.

Temperatures today will again remain well below the normal high of 88 degrees, but they will get closer to normal later this week only to fall back to below normal levels again by Sunday as yet another pleasant air mass reaches the northeastern states.
