Another decent day is in store across the Northeast thanks to high pressure over New England, but for us in the Mid-Atlantic this high will mean a moist easterly flow and an abundance of low cloudiness to start the day. A few stray showers may be around to the south and east very early this morning, but no big deal as anything that occurs will be brief and light. By the afternoon the easterly flow weakens a bit (thanks to a low wrapping up over the ocean) and we should see a few peeks of sunshine… but I wouldn’t get too excited east of town, expect clouds to stick around here until the following day.
The workweek will begin on a beautiful note as high pressure slowly shifts eastward with the next front of note still well to the west. This will keep partly sunny skies over the region, and with temperatures once again in the upper 60s and low 70s it would be a great day to sneak out for lunch and take an extended break (at least I would)! Changes are abound for Tuesday, however, as the aforementioned cold front slides eastward into the area and brings with it a renewed shot at a little rainfall. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms can be expected by Tuesday afternoon with gradual drying/clearing overnight. That said, this front will stall out just to the southeast and retreat back across the area on Wednesday as a warm front.
Wednesday looks unsettled with a good deal of cloud cover and a few showers/thunderstorms scattered about with the active pattern forecast to persist into Thursday and Friday as well, unfortunately. A trough will move into the east and is expected to develop a closed upper-level low nearby… so it’s hard to say at this point when this thing will clear out. Needless to say, the longer range forecast is of less confidence than normal.
Have a great day!
