Once the morning fog/haze breaks, this afternoon turns out quite pleasant. Partly cloudy skies this evening will become mostly cloudy tonight. These clouds are associated with a MCS in the Ohio Valley. This complex fired up on the top of the ridge last night, and will continue along a warm front in a southeast direction this evening, heading for Virginia and the Carolinas.
Monday will be a very warm day and I-95 bathes in plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will be well above normal. Our high Monday is a few degrees above MOS and gridded data, but it is spring and with no foliage out yet temperatures will skyrocket above MOS. We’ll probably want to put a special emphasis on the fact that there will be a large temperature range between coastal and inland communities (60s along the coast and lower/middle-80s well inland).
We should enjoy the weather because all good things must come to and end. A cold front will eventually drive through the region Monday night bringing showers and thunderstorms to the region. Similar to last week’s storm, there is a chance that some of the t-storms could produce damaging winds. Models are still unsure on the exact timing of this front and shower or t-storm could linger Tuesday.
