Discussion

The frontal system that is grudgingly pushing through the I-95 corridor will finally pull off the east coast by tonight. As a result, lingering showers are likely today and it'll stay unusually cool with a low-level ocean flow of air. While the second half of the week will be quieter than the beginning of the week, there will be enough instability in the atmosphere to generate a few showers each day as we head into the weekend or even perhaps a thunderstorm.
