Discussion

High pressure remains in control of the weather pattern in the Mid-Atlantic region and it will continue to do so right into the early part of next week. Temperatures will continue to remain at or slightly below normal for this time of year and humidity will stay at very comfortable levels. Low pressure will intensify off the east coast later this weekend, but should stay just far enough offshore to prevent any impact in the Mid-Atlantic region during the early part of next week.

Elsewhere, cold air has penetrated into the Rocky Mountain States and significant early season snow will fall today in parts of Wyoming, Utah and Montana. The Atlantic Basin (i.e., Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico) continues to experience quiet conditions with respect to tropical systems and, much farther away, the sun also remains rather quiet with low solar activity and no actively flaring sunspots.
