10:00 AM | ***Damaging wind gusts possible this morning/mid-day with rain/scattered strong thunderstorms…some sun this afternoon to boost chances for late day/evening severe weather*** — Arcfield Weather

Rain and scattered strong thunderstorms have also pushed into the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor and will continue for much of the morning.  Strong low-level winds from a southwesterly direction are contributing to wind gusts of 40 mph and temperatures have jumped to very mild levels.  There remains the potential for winds to gust as high as 50-55 mph during the next several hours; especially, in any strong thunderstorm that may form. 

By mid-day, a dry slot will push up into the I-95 corridor region and there can even be enough clearing to allow for some sunshine boosting temperatures well into the 70’s in some areas along the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor.  Any sunshine that develops this afternoon will act to destabilize the atmosphere ahead of the incoming strong cold front.  As a result, thunderstorms are likely to form along and just ahead of the incoming cold front and the abundant shear and instability in the atmosphere will raise the chance for late day/evening (4-10 pm) severe storms.  Any of these thunderstorms later today/early tonight can produce damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, hail, and even isolated tornadoes will be a possibility.

Behind the cold front, winds will remain quite strong later tonight and on Sunday, but from a northwesterly direction bringing in much colder air compared to today. Temperatures on Sunday will be some 20 degrees colder than today despite sunshine and many spots in the Mid-Atlantic region will drop to near the freezing mark late tomorrow night.  Looking ahead, there very well may be another severe weather outbreak next week.
