A back door cold front has dropped southward overnight through the Mid-Atlantic region and this has generated a light ocean flow of air around here. Given the still quite cold ocean temperatures, this will make it slightly cooler today compared to yesterday's record-breaking heat (91 degrees at Reagan National), but we’ll still likely come close to 80 degrees. Farther north, the ocean flow of air will have a much more dramatic effect on temperatures as Philly will likely hold in the 60’s, NYC metro region in the 50’s, and Boston in the 40's.
A more conventional west-to-east moving cold front will approach the region later tonight and Friday bringing with it periods of rain and perhaps a few strong thunderstorms. Once the front sweeps off the east coast by tomorrow night, drier air will return to the region and the weekend is shaping up to be pretty decent with highs in the 60's on both days. It'll turn warmer early next week with highs back up in the 70's on Monday and Tuesday.
