After a rough start to the holiday weekend, things have really mellowed out and the current weather charts show a lack of any strong or well-organized systems within the lower 48. Right now, there is a high pressure system heading east from Maine and a weak low over the Great Lakes.
That low will be passing by to our north tomorrow, but an upper-level short wave currently moving through the Ohio Valley will reach the mid-Atlantic Coast overnight. That short wave is currently not causing any precipitation or much in the way of clouds, but when it reaches the coast it will trigger the development of a surface low offshore that could bring some spotty rain to the region as early as Monday night.
Temps will be moderating throughout the work-week though. Starting tonight, as slight southerly flow and extra cloud cover will keep temps around 30… much better than last night’s 20s! We will also see highs tomorrow afternoon in the upper 40s. As a warm-front moves in by the end of next week, temps will climb into the mid 50s!
