First, an update on the weather situation in California…an intense storm closes in today and it’ll produce widespread heavy rainfall across the state with up to ten inches possible in southern sections. In fact, this could turn out to be one of the worst storms in many years for southern California with strong winds, possible power outages and flash flooding to go along with the heavy rainfall. Yet another storm arrives early next week and this one is likely to primarily pound northern California with additional substantial rainfall - something they certainly don't need.
Here in the Mid-Atlantic region, high pressure pushes off the coast this weekend and this will allow warmer air to push into the area from the southwest. In fact, high temperatures should surpass 60 degrees in the DC metro region on both weekend days – a true taste of spring. High pressure will then build into SE Canada on Monday and this should cause temperatures to slide back some in the Mid-Atlantic for a couple of days; especially, from New York City northward. It’ll then turn warmer again by the middle and latter parts of next week.
