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!
While all the news isn’t good, that doesn’t mean it is all bad, either.
With a clear sky and virtually no wind early Thursday, temperatures are starting off in the 40s.
Temperatures will drop from the 60s Monday to 40s Tuesday.
Colder air is moving into Maryland, creating clouds and spotty showers as it arrives.
There will be high clouds and some mid clouds Sunday as high pressure slides to our east and some of the moisture coming out well in advance of the next storm system streaks northeastward.
