Discussion

A warm front pushed through the area on Thursday and the result will be noticeably warmer weather conditions today in the Mid-Atlantic region to close out the work week and the slight chance for another shower or thunderstorm. Meanwhile, the remains of Tropical Storm Bill continue to trek slowly to the northeast across the south-central states and it appears as though they’ll push into the I-95 corridor region of DC, Philly and NYC by Father's Day. As a result, the threat exists for periods of heavy rain late Saturday night and early Sunday with embedded thunderstorms and localized flooding conditions. Total rainfall amounts in the I-95 corridor from this system can certainly reach a few inches in a relatively short period of time. The afternoon on Sunday may actually turn out to be pretty decent following the expected heavy rainfall. The rain will be accompanied by tropical-like warmth and humidity levels. Following the “tropical” activity on Sunday, the first half of next week looks quite warm and generally rain-free in the Mid-Atlantic region.
