Discussion

The warm up that began here on Tuesday will likely reach its pinnacle in temperatures this afternoon with highs in the mid-to-upper 70’s. A broad southwesterly flow of mild air continues today across a large portion of the eastern US on the backside of a strong high pressure system that is drifting over the western Atlantic Ocean. Low pressure will track northeast across the Midwest on Friday and it will drag a cold front through this area tomorrow night paving the way for a much cooler weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region. In fact, temperatures this weekend are likely to hold in the low-to-mid 50’s for afternoon highs – quite a change from the mid-to-upper 70’s expected this afternoon. Another low pressure system could impact the Mid-Atlantic region early next week and it could be just cold enough for some frozen precipitation to be in the mix. One final note, clocks will need to be turned ahead early Sunday morning as we switch back to daylight savings time.
