WEATHER BLOG: Transition
A cold front approaching the region from the northwest has helped to spread some clouds into parts of the area which is resulting in temperatures that are several degrees milder than last night.
As the front pushes through the area during the day, there can be a shower or thunderstorm along or ahead of the front from mid morning onward. The flow will shift to the north and northwest tonight as some drier air pushes in due to high pressure building across eastern Ontario and southern Quebec.
A disturbance will approach and then pass by just to our south Monday and Tuesday bringing some rain to parts of the mid-Altantic. The high off to our north will try and flex its muscles and suppress the disturbance for Monday, however, some showers and perhaps embedded storms are expected to build into Maryland from west to east during the day and continue through Monday night. The flow will shift from the north to the east on Tuesday which will cause dew points to climb adding a bit more humidity to the air. A second disturbance tracking a little farther north than the first one
will make its way toward the area for the middle of the week. This next disturbance will bring a few showers and storms Wednesday and Thursday as it crosses the northern mid-Atlantic and then shifts off of the coast by the end of the week.
