A cool front now crossing the western part of Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio will continue to generate occasional showers around here during the morning hours and an afternoon thunderstorm could form. It’ll turn cooler behind the front on Friday and Saturday, but the frontal system will stall right near the coastline as it runs into an atmospheric brick wall known as the Bermuda high. This will allow for the threat of showers and thunderstorms to continue in the region on Friday and Saturday while on the cool (i.e., western) side of the front. By early next week, the off-shore Bermuda high pressure system will tend to re-establish itself westward into the region generating hotter conditions with plenty of sunshine.
Elsewhere, the former Tropical Storm Chantal indeed weakened considerably after crossing over the "rough terrain" islands of the Caribbean Sea over the past 24 hours and it no longer attains "tropical storm" status. There is a chance that the remnants of Chantal, now north of the islands and primarily over open waters, could gain back some strength as the remains head towards the Bahamas so we'll continue to monitor it. Also, somewhat unusual for this time of year, scattered showers and thunderstorms have converged on southern California as a strong disturbance passes overhead.
