The weather will be giving us a “temporary break” Friday, although when a couple of showers return late Friday night and last into Saturday these won’t manage to be as intense as those we encountered Wednesday night or even Thursday afternoon.
The surface weather map early Friday is showing that front we have been talking about all week pressing southward into North Carolina. So, as a high pressure system located in eastern Canada “flexes its muscle” just enough to deliver less humid air, there should be intervals of sunshine and it will be rather pleasant. But Friday night, there is going to be a ripple of low pressure moving out of the Ohio Valley, which should bring clouds back to Maryland, and some places will even get a shower and thunderstorm after midnight. As we’ve been stressing the past couple of days, while the weather Saturday will be rather “unsettled” with plenty of clouds, a couple of showers and a thunderstorm or two around — the day won’t be a complete washout.
