7:00 AM | *Additional showers today and much cooler with highs in the 70's*

Paul Dorian

A cold front will slowly work its way through the region today and there will be additional shower activity throughout the I-95 corridor. Temperatures will be well below-normal today for late July and much cooler than recent days with highs confined to the 70’s in most spots. High pressure will build into the area for Wednesday and likely stay in control for the rest of the week with generally comfortable conditions.

7:00 AM | **Severe thunderstorm and heavy rainfall threat as we transition to cooler-than-normal**

Paul Dorian

The hot weekend weather will transition to below-normal temperatures by tomorrow in the Mid-Atlantic and the adjustment will lead to showers and thunderstorms as a cold front approaches from the Great Lakes. Some of the storms later today and tonight can be strong-to-severe and there can be torrential rainfall with flash flooding. Following the frontal passage, highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will likely be confined to the lower 80’s which is actually below-normal for late July and some 15-20 degrees cooler than the extreme heat of the past weekend. The much more reasonable weather pattern in terms of temperatures will likely last through the remainder of the month of July in the Mid-Atlantic region.

2:45 PM | *Three day heat wave may end with quite a bang*

Paul Dorian

The next three days will likely be the hottest stretch all summer long in the Mid-Atlantic region with urban areas along Route I-95 likely to make a run at the 100 degree mark (e.g., DCA, PHL, NYC) over the weekend.  (Philly Airport hasn’t reached the 100 degree mark in the last 7 years).  There is significant relief coming to the Midwest, NE US and Mid-Atlantic region next week and temperatures are quite likely going to be below-normal on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The transition from the extreme heat and humidity expected this weekend to the cooler-than-normal conditions next week may very well come with strong-to-severe thunderstorm activity in the Sunday night to early Tuesday time period with more torrential rainfall and potential damaging winds.

7:00 AM | ***3 days of high heat and humidity with a run to 100 degrees each afternoon...heat wave may end with a bang...significant relief next week***

Paul Dorian

A true summer heat wave will take place over the next three days from the Midwest to the east coast, but significant relief is on the way for next week. Temperatures will soar through the 90's today, tomorrow and Sunday in the DC metro region and can reach the 100 degree mark for highs on any of these three days. The end of the 3-day heat wave may come with some strong-to-severe thunderstorm activity on Sunday night and/or Monday. By next Tuesday, temperatures will be below-normal and the overall temperature pattern looks pretty favorable going into early August with additional comfortable air masses on the way for the central and eastern US.

7:00 AM | **Extensive heat and humidity on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but relief is in sight**

Paul Dorian

There can be additional showers and thunderstorms today associated with entrenched tropical moisture and once this large moisture field pushes away later today, an atmospheric blow torch will set up for the Mid-Atlantic region. Temperatures will be somewhat reduced today due to extensive cloud cover, but will soar tomorrow and it’ll stay excessively hot and humid this weekend with a run to 100 degrees possible each day during this stretch; especially, on Saturday. There can be scattered showers and storms again later Sunday with a weak frontal system and then more showers and storms are likely later Monday as a stronger front arrives. That stronger front will usher in cooler air by next Tuesday when highs are likely to be confined to the 80’s and the remainder of July is looking anywhere from normal to slightly below normal in terms of temperatures.

10:10 AM | ***Severe thunderstorms, torrential rain a threat for later today, tonight and Thursday…excessive heat and humidity to peak Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a run to 100 degrees possible***

Paul Dorian

There are two big weather stories unfolding for the Mid-Atlantic region for the next few days with the potential of severe thunderstorms and torrential rainfall later today and tonight as the remains of Barry pass through the region and then the hottest weather of the summer so far in the Friday through Sunday time frame. An already very warm and moist atmosphere will get even more unstable later today and tonight as a trough of low pressure associated with what was once tropical cyclone Barry passes through leading to numerous showers and thunderstorms.

Once this large tropical moisture field pushes away from the area, an atmospheric blow torch will setup and cause temperatures to soar on Friday in the I-95 corridor and it’ll stay excessively hot and humid this weekend with a run to 100 degrees possible during this stretch.  There can be scattered showers and storms late Sunday with a weak frontal system and then more showers and storms on Monday associated with an even stronger frontal system which will usher in cooler air by next Tuesday.  In fact, the remainder of July looks much more pleasant across the eastern half of the nation with normal-to-below normal temperatures and we could very well look back on this Friday-to-Sunday heat wave as the worst of the summer in the Mid-Atlantic region.

7:00 AM | ***Excessive heat and humidity today....threat for strong storms and torrential rainfall...a run at 100 degrees from Friday to Sunday***

Paul Dorian

The remnants of Barry will pass through the region later today and tonight and likely result in numerous showers and thunderstorms between 4 pm and midnight. There is the potential of torrential rainfall and some of the storms can reach severe levels with damaging wind gusts. It’ll be hot today with highs well up in the 90’s and then clouds may shave off a few degrees on Thursday, but then look out for the hottest weather of the year on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a run to 100 degrees possible for highs in that stretch. There can be scattered showers and storms later Sunday associated with a weak front and an even stronger front may bring late day showers and storms on Monday. This stronger front will usher in cooler air by next Tuesday with highs back in the 80's and there are signs for continued decent temperatures through the remainder of July. In fact, it could very well turn out that this stretch of excessive heat from Friday through Sunday will be the worst of the heat all summer long.

3:00 PM | ***Thunderstorm and heavy rain threat tonight into Thursday as Barry’s remains pass through the region…an atmospheric blow torch from Friday into Monday with 100 degrees on the table***

Paul Dorian

There are two big weather stories unfolding in the Mid-Atlantic region for the second half of the week and the upcoming weekend with the potential of some strong-to-severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall over the next couple days as the remains of Barry pass through the region and then the hottest weather of the summer so far in the Friday into Monday time frame. Showers and thunderstorms are possible from tonight into Thursday in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor - any one of which can produce heavy rainfall.  Once this large moisture field associated with Barry’s remnants pushes away from the area, an atmospheric blow torch will set up and cause temperatures to soar on Friday in the I-95 corridor and triple digits will be possible over the upcoming weekend.  A strong cool front is likely to bring a round of showers and storms to the Mid-Atlantic late on Monday and more reasonable air is likely for the middle and latter parts of next week.

7:00 AM | **Shower/thunderstorm threat from later today into Thursday...excessive heat by the weekend**

Paul Dorian

There are two big weather stories unfolding for the week and weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region with the potential of some heavy rainfall from later tomorrow into Thursday from the remains of tropical system Barry and then the hottest weather of the summer so far for the Friday, Saturday, Sunday time frame and perhaps even lasting into the early part of next week. Showers and thunderstorms are likely from later Wednesday into Thursday in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor mainly as a result of the remains of what was once Hurricane Barry and some of this rain can be heavy at times. Once this large tropical moisture field pushes away, the excessive heat will become the main story with upper 90’s possible for highs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and triple digit highs are certainly on the table.

11:15 AM | **Excessive heat in the Mid-Atlantic for Friday, Saturday, Sunday…Barry’s remains to enhance chance for showers and thunderstorms at mid-week and some rain can be heavy**

Paul Dorian

There are two big weather stories unfolding for the week and weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region with the potential of some heavy rainfall at mid-week from the remains of Barry and then the hottest weather of the summer so far for the Friday, Saturday, Sunday time frame and perhaps even into the early part of next week.  Showers and thunderstorms are likely from later Wednesday into Thursday in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor mainly as a result of the remains of Barry and some of this rain can be heavy at times.  Once this large moisture field pushes away, the excessive heat will become the main story with mid-to-upper 90’s possible for highs in DC, Philly and NYC this weekend and triple digits is on the table.
