Discussion

A chilly start to the day with temperatures as a sprawling Canadian high pressure system continues to control our weather pattern in the Mid-Atlantic region. We’ll enjoy another very pleasant day thanks to this high pressure system, but it’ll shift off the Northeast US coastline on Friday and that will open the door for some unsettled weekend weather conditions. It’ll also turn much warmer this weekend and there will an increase in humidity leading to scattered showers and thunderstorms, but neither day will be a washout.
