Discussion

A strong cool front will arrive in the Mid-Atlantic region today and it is going to break our recent dry spell with occasional showers and perhaps a brief, gusty thunderstorm or two - gusts can reach 50+ mph in isolated spots. This does not look like a significant rain event and it should pull out of here in time for a decent, but quite cool weekend. In fact, temperatures late Saturday night/early Sunday morning are likely to drop to the lowest levels of the season so far with lows not far from the 40 degree mark in many spots. Another cool front arrives on Tuesday of next week and it will be followed by another cool air mass for the mid-week time period.
