Discussion

High pressure will control our weather for another day, but will shift off the coast by tomorrow. At the same time, the next cold frontal system will close in on the east coast and it should generate some shower activity in the Mid-Atlantic region as we close out the work week, but it will certainly not be a heavy rain event. The weekend looks quite nice, but then an overall unsettled weather pattern will develop early next week and there is the potential for a heavy rain event on Monday. This pattern change will ultimately result in much colder-than-normal weather for the eastern two-thirds of the nation during the latter part of April.
