WEATHER BLOG: August Friday
Some dry weather for Friday as a ridge of high pressure temporarily builds into the mid-Atlantic states. The sky should average partly sunny (“brightest during the morning,” but there will be some fair-weather clouds bubbling up Friday afternoon), and most temperatures will be in the mid and upper 80s.
After a comfortable night, there should be a tendency for clouds to increase. A couple of showers and a thunderstorm are also likely, especially Saturday afternoon and evening, as the next front quickly arrives from the north and west, pushing another round of moisture into the area.
Sunday, we’re going to be “cautious” about not trying to promise too much in the way of sunshine.
The danger in doing so is that the aforementioned front is still going to be located in the area, especially during the morning hours. Therefore, not only could there be some clouds, but even another shower or thunderstorm to contend with. We don’t have this in the forecast now, but it may have to be added later.
Monday and most of Tuesday should be dry, but as another disturbance located to our west starts to spread its moisture into the area later on Tuesday, the chances for getting a shower or thunderstorm will be increasing once again.
