Discussion

A storm well off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will continue to produce a low-level flow of cool air off the ocean (NE winds) and this will keep temperatures down today to below-normal levels. However, once the weekend begins, this flow off the ocean will terminate and it’ll turn noticeably milder by tomorrow afternoon although there can be a shower or thunderstorm anywhere along and west of the I-95 corridor. It’ll turn even warmer early next week with the mid-to-upper 70’s likely for highs on Sunday and then 80+ degrees possible on Monday and Tuesday.
