Discussion

August has been cooler-than-normal so far (-3.1 degrees at PHL) an another spectacular air mass is headed our way for this time of year. The weather through tonight will be warm and humid with a spotty showers and thunderstorms, but rain is more likely on Tuesday as another cool front approaches the region and some of the rain will be heavy at times. High pressure will follow the frontal system for the mid and late week time periods bringing us the return of sunshine and very comfortable conditions for mid-August with highs likely holding in the 70's in many Mid-Atlantic locations. Elsewhere, the sun remains rather quiet as does the Atlantic tropical scene. Meanwhile, the Perseid meteor shower will peak later tonight; however, the sky conditions do not look all that favorable.
