Discussion

Cooler and drier air pushed into the Mid-Atlantic region yesterday and it will stay cool today with sunshine giving way to late thickening clouds ahead of a developing coastal low pressure system. That system will spread some occasional rain or drizzle into the region later tonight and Tuesday and temperatures tomorrow will be held in the low-to-mid 70's for highs as there will be a cool, ocean flow of air at low levels of the atmosphere. By Wednesday, low pressure will gradually pull away from the coast and there could be some clearing late in the day and then there will be a noticeable warmup on Thursday ahead of the next strong cool front. That cool front will generate afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms on Thursday and it will usher in the coolest air mass of the season so far to the Mid-Atlantic region. The weekend appears quite cool and dry from this vantage point and temperatures will be well below normal for this time of year.
