Discussion

Yesterday featured the development of a squall line that formed early in the afternoon across the Ohio Valley and then it raced eastward across the interior Mid-Atlantic region reaching the I-95 corridor around 8pm with damaging wind gusts and brief heavy rainfall. A cold front arrives in the region today and it will then slowly settle just to the south of the area by later tomorrow. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue this afternoon in the Mid-Atlantic region and cannot be completely ruled out for Thursday afternoon. High pressure should then control the weather on Friday and Saturday providing us with pleasant overall conditions before more humidity returns to the area as we close out the weekend. Another cold front will then enhance the chances for showers and thunderstorms early next week ahead of a cool air mass for this time of year.
