Discussion

Much warmer air has been expanding in the southern portion of the country over the last few days and it is now making a slow advancement to the north and east. A warm front will reach the the Mid-Atlantic region tomorrow night likely accompanied by some shower and thunderstorm activity. The DC metro region will be the first location along the I-95 corridor to experience a surge in temperatures as temperatures there on Thursday afternoon are likely reach or even slightly surpass the 80 degree mark. The Philly metro region is likely to experience the warm air surge on Friday afternoon with high temperatures possibly flirting with the 80 degree mark as we close out the work week. There is a small chance, however, that the warm air surge into Philly gets delayed a day and doesn't arrive with full force until Saturday. New York City is likely to not see a noticeable increase in temperatures until Saturday at which time highs up there should reach the mid-to-upper 70's.
