Getting Warmer

Today will be another warm one with more warmth in store for the upcoming week. Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely during the afternoon and evening hours as a warm front lifts across the region. Sunday will be much the same, however, the PM activity will be from an incoming cool front through the Ohio Valley. Coverage of showers and storms becomes almost nil Monday and into the midweek with increasing heat.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure remains in place across the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast. A weak warm front lifts through the Ohio Valley into the Mid-Atlantic today producing mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. The afternoon-evening activity ramps up again on Sunday as a cold front moves out of the Great Lakes into the Ohio Valley. Widely scattered showers and storms are a good bet. The temperatures stay warm and the mercury rises as we move into the upcoming work week.

High pressure builds over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic on Monday giving us a slight bump up in temperatures while helping to squash any widespread shower development. This pattern holds Wednesday and into Thursday with temperatures slowly ticking upward.

Thursday has a better chance for isolated shower and thunderstorm development during the afternoon-evening hours thanks to a weak cold front approaching from the Ohio Valley. Friday will be similar with mostly PM activity and a bit cooler temperatures.
