WEATHER BLOG: Pleasant Saturday
High pressure to the northwest will slide eastward into Quebec Saturday, replacing the high pressure that had been to the northeast and responsible for keeping things on the cool side of average the last few days.
This transition to this “new high” carries with it a weak front crossing the area. The weak front (absent of any rain) will more or less stir up the atmosphere and deliver more of a “land” air mass which helps us warm. We remain more in the northern stream of weather with the southern closed low and storm system down in the Southeast to — harmlessly for us — slowly move to the east away into the Atlantic to east of the Carolinas Sunday.
The rain shield will probably get no farther north than it is now across the southern Delmarva. However, as seen on satellite, we are in a shield of high clouds from this system to the south and we will have those high clouds most of Saturday and into even Sunday. We’ll get generally no worse than “partial sunsine” with sun filtering through the high clouds.
