Discussion

A meandering frontal system has been pushed southward in the Mid-Atlantic region during the overnight hours by a strengthening high pressure system which has expanded eastward from southeastern Canada into New England. This front will keep conditions unsettled around here right through Friday night with periods of rain, drizzle and fog. This front separates very mild air to the south and quite cold air to its north for this time of year. A persistent and stiff E-NE wind generated by the increasingly powerful high pressure system up north will ensure that DC, Philly and NYC remain on the cold side of the front right into tomorrow night. On Friday, this front will advance northward as a warm front as the strong high pressure system exits off the Northeast US coastline. As a result, our temperatures will jump as we close out the work week, but the threat for showers will continue as a cold front approaches from the west and thunderstorms are even possible. Drier weather is likely this weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region following the cold frontal passage along with pleasant temperatures.
