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.
While all the news isn’t good, that doesn’t mean it is all bad, either.
We need to mention spotty sprinkles or showers again Thursday afternoon. Otherwise short-term looks pretty much OK.
There is a front passing through the state. It has drawn moisture up from the southern storm, and is bringing a few showers with it. So there will be spotty showers Wednesday into the first half of night before that front gets out of here. Even with the front and the clouds that it’s bringing, the mild air continues. We are going to top out in the low 50s, then close to 50 again Thursday and Friday. That’s still about 10 degrees above average.
The front came and went overnight with a little snow across the northern tier of the state, and some rain showers farther south.
After a day filled with sunshine and a high of 43 degrees, there is a little hiccup coming Saturday night before warmer air makes a run at the Mid-Atlantic.
While there could be some breaks in the clouds early, there should be some fog developing once again late Thursday night. The ideas are still intact that high pressure Friday and on Saturday should bring no less than partial sunshine and unseasonably warm afternoons.
We topped out right at the average of 65 degrees this afternoon. It was just another beautiful, crisp, fall day. The high pressure that brought us this beautiful air mass will slowly drift down to our southeast.
A 10-minute shower can use less water than a full bath.
The stalled front which brought us several rounds of rain the last few days has temporarily been pushed off to the south of us. It has put us on the drier, cooler, northern side of the front.
High pressure is still dominating our weather pattern, and will for a few more days. The one difference is that it is slowly drifting off to the east of us.
Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue until the remnant center of Isaac clears us later this week.
