Discussion

High pressure anchored in the Northeast US, both at the surface and in the upper atmosphere, will control our weather right through the weekend. A weak front did slide down the northeast coast in the overnight hours and today will turn out a bit cooler than yesterday with a light flow of air off the ocean in much of the Mid-Atlantic region. Sunshine and pleasant temperatures will return for the weekend, but the high pressure system will gradually lose control early next week as moisture heads this way from our southwest. Clouds will increase on Monday and showers will threaten by Tuesday and Wednesday. Finally, there is another meteor shower that peaks this weekend and nighttime skies should be cooperative.
