Discussion

A warm front will cross our area early today and then a strong cold front will approach from the west late in the day. As a result, temperatures will jump this afternoon and there will be occasional showers and perhaps a strong thunderstorm or two mixed into the picture. The cold front will sweep off the coast by early tomorrow and this will pave the way for a decent weekend in the I-95 corridor although the breeze will be quite noticeable on Saturday.
