Discussion

Unsettled weather will be the rule for the rest of the week as a frontal system will bounce back and forth in the Mid-Atlantic region. Showers threaten the region today and tonight as the frontal system drops southward through the I-95 corridor. By tomorrow, low-level E-NE winds will develop on the north side of the front in the I-95 corridor and it’ll turn noticeably colder. That chill will last into Thursday and both of these two chilly days will feature occasional rain or drizzle. The same frontal system will then turn around on Friday and push northward as a warm front and it’ll turn milder again around here as we close out the work week, but the threat for showers will continue.
