Discussion

High pressure will take control today and provide the Mid-Atlantic region with pleasant weather conditions as we end the work week and begin the weekend. Humidity will begin to climb on Sunday as the high pressure system slides off the east coast allowing for the return flow of warmer and more humid air from our southwest. A strong cold front will approach the Mid-Atlantic region early next week enhancing our chances for showers and thunderstorms. That front will usher in cooler air to the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast US later next week.
