Discussion

A weak frontal system is approaching the eastern states today and it is generating scattered showers in the Mid-Atlantic region this morning - perhaps there will be an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. The weekend starts off real well with warm, dry conditions on Saturday, but then Sunday turns cooler along with increasing clouds. A significant rain event is likely in the DC metro region during Sunday night and early Monday as the overall weather pattern begins a transition to colder-than-normal weather which will be the dominate theme in the eastern two-thirds of the nation as we progress through the latter stages of April.
