The leading edge of some much warmer and more humid air is slowly advancing through the mid-Atlantic. The combination of any breaks of sunshine along with increasing dew points and temps could fire up an isolated shower or t-storm by the afternoon and evening so we will be keeping a very close eye on that.
This is the coldest air mass we have had in at least two years.
On this somber day in U.S. history, the weather is eerily similar to that Tuesday morning in 2001.
A front separating a much drier air mass over upstate New York from the humid air over our region lies near the N.Y. border. The proximity of the front will spark a few thundershowers today and early this evening, though about half the region will remain dry.
Today is our transition day. The slow moving storm that brought us needed rain crept away overnight, while another front moves our way this afternoon.
Not a bad start to the weekend yesterday with temperatures around 90 and dew points in the low 60s. We’ve certainly experienced much worse for this time of year!
What a beautiful start to the weekend – weatherwise at least. Sunshine returned today and helped to warm us up to 90 degrees.
