Discussion

High pressure will build into the Mid-Atlantic region today and the result will be plenty of sunshine and noticeably warmer and more humid conditions. In fact, by tomorrow afternoon most locations along the I-95 corridor between DC and NYC should end up near the 90 degree mark. This return to more summer-like heat and humidity, however, will not last all that long. A cool front will approach the region on Thursday resulting in an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms and then more comfortable air will return to the Mid-Atlantic for the upcoming weekend. Elsewhere, the Atlantic remains rather quiet for the time being as far as tropical activity is concerned, but the sun has become somewhat more active with numerous sunspots now visible on the Earth-facing side.
