WEATHER BLOG: Record Tumble
Numerous high temperature records were broken Saturday across mid-Atlantic and
parts of the Northeast. New York City, Newark, N.J., Philadelphia, Baltimore,
Washington D.C. and Norfolk, Va. established new record highs, just to name a few.
More temperature records will fall Sunday in the East, including high minimums.
There will be lengthy breaks between showers through the morning hours Sunday,
but pauses will be less frequent during the afternoon. With southerly flow aloft, the
eastward progression of this front will slow through Sunday night and will not push
through until early Monday morning. Therefore, temperatures will remain quite mild
Sunday night into early Monday before coming down through the day. With the area
under the right entrance region of the upper jet Sunday night and early Monday, it
looks like another wave of rain will develop along the front. Most models give over 1″
of rain along the I-95 corridor Sunday night through Monday morning. There can be
some flooding Sunday night into Monday morning, especially in low lying and poor
drainage areas. It also looks like rain could linger into at least early afternoon
