Discussion

After today's nice weather for Opening Day for the Nationals, it will turn out to be quite an unsettled week as a frontal system will meander in the Mid-Atlantic region for several days threatening us with showers at times from tonight through Friday. First, the front will be positioned to our north for the next couple of days allowing for mild conditions in the area. Then, this front will sag south of here and a northeast wind will push in colder air for the region on Wednesday and Thursday. The same front will then push back to the north as a warm front as the work week closes out continuing our unsettled weather pattern and threat for showers as milder air returns.
