Discussion

A gem of a day today with crystal clear blue skies, comfortable temperatures and low humidity. Canadian high pressure is now in control of the weather here in the Mid-Atlantic region; consequently, temperatures and humidity will be at comfortable levels for the next few days. By the end of the work week, however, humidity will be on the rise again around here and in the Ohio Valley. Furthermore, copious amounts of tropical moisture will be centered over the eastern Gulf of Mexico with Florida likely to get deluged with mid-to-late week rainfall. That tropical moisture may take a northeastward turn up the east coast late this week and combine with the Ohio Valley moisture to produce quite an unsettled period around here from Friday through Sunday with a daily threat for showers and thunderstorms.
