Discussion

High pressure pushed off the east coast yesterday and this allowed milder air to push in from the southwest, but the warm up will not last much longer. After temperatures return to the 60’s this afternoon, a downward trend will begin on Thursday as low pressure develops in the Mid-Atlantic region. This storm will generate occasional rain in the area on Thursday and then another chilly air mass will follow on its heels at the end of the work week. That renewed chill on Friday will be accompanied by stiff NW winds and it’ll stay chilly right through the upcoming weekend. In fact, a reinforcing shot of cold air for this time of year will arrive on Sunday – not allowing for any significant warm up in between these back-to-back colder-than-normal air masses.
