Discussion

The new work week starts off quite unsettled in the Mid-Atlantic region with light rain or drizzle as a cold front approaches from the west. High pressure will take better control of our weather on Tuesday and Wednesday, but then a major rain event is in the offing from Thursday into Friday as the remains of Tropical Storm “Zeta” head our way. “Zeta” is currently located in the northwest Caribbean and is likely to reach hurricane status over the next couple of days as it heads towards a likely mid-week landfall in the central Gulf coastal region. After that, “Zeta” will first head to the Tennessee Valley on Thursday and then to the Mid-Atlantic coastline by Thursday night bringing significant rainfall to the region.
