Discussion

High pressure has pushed off the Northeast coastline and this has allowed for the return of high humidity air into the I-95 corridor. Early morning clouds and patchy fog today will give way to partial sunshine and the higher humidity will be quite noticeable through the day. A widespread threat for showers and thunderstorms comes to the region later tomorrow with the approach of the next strong cool frontal system. Any thunderstorm that forms on Saturday in the metro region can contain some heavy rainfall. Once that next cool front clears the east coast early on Sunday, much cooler air will push into the area and it’ll stay cooler-than-normal on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Showers are possible late Monday and Tuesday from a coastal low pressure area that will likely form over the weekend.
