A new storm is moving our way. Most of the area stayed dry today ahead of it, but scattered showers and thunderstorms will move across the state starting tonight.
The heat has backed off from the peak earlier this week, but it’s still warm and muggy. Add a stalled front to this air mass and you get the showers and thunderstorms that we are seeing outside today.
It was a warm start to the long weekend, but even warmer air is headed this way.
The storm that caused all of our rain and severe weather is still hanging around but has moved up over New England. That’s far enough that we saw a lot of sunshine today and temperatures rose up to 82 degrees.
The stubborn upper-level low responsible for so much rain this week will remain a thorn in our side for one more day, but fortunately more sunshine will be had as this feature finally heads offshore.
We’re expecting a much more unsettled, wetter weather pattern over the next several days.
And what a beautiful day it was weatherwise. There was a batch of showers that moved through this morning and just a couple of very isolated evening showers spread out across the entire state.
Even though there were some showers today, they held again until late in the day. That allowed for a lot of sunshine most of the day and the high to climb to 71 degrees. Although there is no huge storm coming our way tomorrow, the main storm track (jetstream) is still running just over Maryland.
