Discussion

High pressure will shift off the Northeast coast today and southwesterly winds will develop on its backside by tomorrow pumping much milder air into the Mid-Atlantic region on Tuesday. It’ll stay mild on Wednesday ahead of a strong cold frontal system that will be approaching the east coast from the Midwest. This active front has the potential to generate heavy rain and strong thunderstorms in the region late Wednesday into Thursday before drier air returns late in the week.
