The theme continues: warm, muggy and unsettled as the upper-level pattern does not change very much.
We have quite the fun weather pattern here over the next several days.
We have a couple of showers to contend with early — since there is still an upper-level low pressure system that is rotating/spinning its wheels over western portions of New York State and Pennsylvania.
Rain associated with the offshore storm is shifting east while a band of showers associated with the other storm is moving into the mountains from the west.
We are still dealing with the storm that rolled in Monday night. The center, carrying most of the moisture, has moved off to the north. However, a trailing front will hang over the I-95 corridor through Thursday. That will keep the chance for a shower or thunderstorm around Wednesday and again Thursday.
Warmer weather is going to be common across much of the Eastern Region over the next few days, as a high pressure system continues to spread out across the Midwest and Great Lakes.
A frontal zone separating hot summery air from cooler Atlantic air will stretch from eastern Ontario to just east of the Delaware River. Moisture converging across the frontal zone will bring patchy clouds and a few scattered mainly afternoon thunderstorms north of the city.
After another seasonably chilly start, the brilliant sunshine has warmed us up nicely this afternoon. BWI-Marshall topped out at 74 degrees.
This energy saver focuses on the fridge.
Another front will move through Wednesday and behind that, a fall-like airmass will move into the northern tier of the country.
