Showers and thunderstorms are likely today in the Mid-Atlantic region as a frontal system approaches the area and some of the rain can be heavy at times. Weak high pressure will fill in behind the front for Thursday and Friday, but a shower or thunderstorm cannot be completely ruled out for either day. Additional frontal systems will head our way this weekend and the result will be the threat for showers and thunderstorms each day during the upcoming holiday weekend.
Elsewhere, a heat wave continues today across portions of the Plains and Midwest with well above normal temperatures for this time of year. Despite this late season heat wave, there is a preliminary report that indicates that this summer has featured the fewest 100 degree days on a nationwide basis in over a century (using NOAA's Global Historical Climatology Network dataset). The five summers with the highest number of 100 degree days across the nation are as follows: 1936, 1934, 1954, 1980 and 1930.
