Discussion

A cool front passed through the area late yesterday and much more comfortable air has pushed into the Mid-Atlantic region. This break in the overall active weather pattern will not last too long; however, as the front will return northward as a warm front later today and tonight and this will renew the chances for rain and thunderstorms. It’ll stay somewhat unsettled later tomorrow and on Friday as well with the chance for a shower or thunderstorm and then attention will turn to the impressive moisture field associated with Tropical Storm Bill which has pounded Texas with heavy rainfall. This area of moisture is likely to get pushed to the north and east over the next few days by upper-level winds and it could very well generate some heavy rainfall in the Mid-Atlantic region late Saturday into Sunday.
