For many of the mid-Atlantic states, especially Maryland, Delaware and northern Va., Tuesday marked our second disruptive snowfall in just three days.
There is sunshine with most temperatures in the lower or middle 60s.
High pressure building in from the southwest will be the major weather player for the next 24-36 hours.
A cold front has brought very little rain to the region today with more in the way of cloud cover.
With high pressure we should expect breaks in clouds Friday afternoon and winds to pick up Saturday. Sunday may have clouds but also sunshine.
Our current surface map shows a ridge of high pressure over the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states providing us with plenty of sunshine and refreshing northeasterly flow.
Temperatures are back on the uptick Saturday and a milder night ahead of the front that crosses the area from north to south Sunday midday.
The pleasant weather with ample sunshine and low humidity will yield to increased humidity and higher chances for thunderstorms this week.
Sunshine will be more abundant on Tuesday than on Monday as high pressure controls most levels of the atmosphere.
We expect a hot and humid afternoon with a mixture of clouds and sunshine.
Thursday morning has already seen strong storms and a series of Severe Thunderstorm Warnings.
Canadian high pressure continues to settle into the region Tuesday, bringing us cooler weather (than last week), low humidity and abundant sunshine!
