Discussion

An upper-level trough will rotate over the Mid-Atlantic region today and it will be followed close behind by a second system that will keep it very unsettled around here right into Sunday, Mother’s Day. There will be periods of rain today and it will be unseasonably chilly with an ocean flow of air keeping temperatures way below-normal for this time of year. It stays on the cool and unsettled side this weekend with temperatures likely confined to the lower 60’s for highs on Saturday and upper 50’s on Sunday and there will be the threat of showers from later tomorrow into Sunday. High pressure takes over early next week and it will turn warmer on Monday with the return of some sunshine.

One final note, there has been a lot of activity on the sun in recent days with a very large sunspot region known officially as AR3664 having unleashed as many as five coronal mass ejections towards Earth. One of the main ejections will arrive into Earth’s upper atmosphere on Saturday, May 11th, and it can spark geomagnetic storms as can a couple to follow close behind later this weekend. Watch for auroras as far south as Virginia during this weekend event which is being classified as a category 4 “severe” geomagnetic storm…rarely seen in recent years.
