The week will get off to a spectacular start with copious amounts of sunshine, pleasant temperatures and comfortable humidity levels. High pressure that originated in Canada will then lose control of the weather in the Mid-Atlantic region by early tomorrow. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will increase on Tuesday as a warm front presses northward from Virginia and the threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue for much of the second half of the week as we deal with another couple of fronts. In fact, genuine clearing probably won't take place around here until this weekend following the passage of yet another strong cool frontal system.
Looking farther ahead, there is no extended hot weather in sight and it not only looks cooler-than-normal in the Mid-Atlantic region for the month of August, but also for much of the nation. As far as the tropics are concerned, the remains of Tropical Storm Dorian came back to life somewhat this weekend regaining tropical depression status just off the southeast coast, but it has now completely dissipated over the Atlantic Ocean. There may be some tropical activity over the Gulf of Mexico within a week or so and look for the tropics to become quite active from mid-August through September.
