Discussion

A cooler air mass will arrive in the region today following the passage of a strong cold front in the overnight hours and temperatures this afternoon will be confined to the 60’s for highs. Temperatures late tonight will drop into the lower 40’s which will be quite a change from the mid and upper 80’s that we experienced on Wednesday afternoon. While the cool down will be quite dramatic from the summer-like warmth at mid-week, the bigger story will be the winds which could gust to the 50-60 mph range later today and tonight – potentially resulting in downed limbs and power outages. The combination of a strong and intensifying low pressure system departing to our northeast and an approaching strong high pressure from the western Great Lakes will create an intense pressure gradient in the Mid-Atlantic region – and result in those potentially damaging wind gusts. The winds will die down later tomorrow and temperatures will climb noticeably from the chilly lower 40’s at the start of the weekend to near the 80 degree mark by later Sunday.
