7:00 AM | More decent rainfall on the way this week...frontal passage on Tuesday enhances chances for rain as does an upper-level trough this weekend

Paul Dorian

A change to a more comfortable weather pattern in the Mid-Atlantic region will begin over the next couple of days with the passage of a strong cool frontal system. Following this initial frontal passage later tomorrow, more comfortable air will push into the region for the mid and late week. By the weekend, a deep upper-level trough is likely to form over the Great Lakes and this will lead to an unsettled weekend. This initial strong cool frontal passage may result in decent rainfall around here later tomorrow with numerous showers and possible thunderstorms. The weekend system is likely to generate some more decent rainfall as well in the Mid-Atlantic region.

7:00 AM | Heat and humidity to build by late weekend/early next week...a couple of shots at some decent rainfall next week

Paul Dorian

High pressure over the Northeast US will continue to be the dominant player around here as we head into the weekend and there will be plenty of sunshine and warm conditions for the next couple of days. The heat and humidity will build as we head into the latter stages of the weekend and the early part of next week and so will the chances for showers and thunderstorms. In fact, there could even be a substantial (and much needed) rain event by later Tuesday into Wednesday depending on the progression of a strong cool frontal system as it closes in on the east coast from the Upper Midwest. In addition, there are signs for a deep upper-level trough to form in the eastern US at the end of next week and this could lead to a second significant rain event in the I-95 corridor. An overall cooler weather pattern appears likely for the Mid-Atlantic region later in the month.

7:00 AM | Generally a rain-free pattern into the weekend, but humidity and shower/storm chances increase late weekend/early next week

Paul Dorian

High pressure over the Northeast US will continue to be the dominant player around here as we head into the weekend and there will be plenty of sunshine over the next few days along with seasonably warm conditions. The heat and humidity will build noticeably as we head into the late weekend and early part of next week and so will the chances of showers and thunderstorms. In fact, there could end up being some substantial rainfall by the middle of next week as a strong cool front closes in on the east coast. A cooler overall weather pattern appears likely for the Mid-Atlantic region later in the month.

7:00 AM | Generally rain-free and warm next several days

Paul Dorian

A weak cool front passed through the region in the overnight hours and the next few days will be dominated by high pressure over the Great Lakes and Northeast US. Temperatures are likely to be confined to the 80’s for highs during this stretch following yesterday's highs in the 90's. Elsewhere, Hurricane Chris is now a category 2 storm and it is pushing away from the east coast in a rather rapid fashion to the northeast. Hurricane Chris will have no weather impact on the Mid-Atlantic region, but the surf can be quite rough at nearby beaches for the next few days.

7:00 AM | 90 degrees today, but temperatures likely confined to the 80's for the rest of the week

Paul Dorian

High pressure will weaken today across the area and a low pressure system moving eastward across southeastern Canada will drag a cool front towards us later in the day. This weak frontal system could spark a scattered shower or thunderstorm around here tonight, but it certainly should not be a significant rain event. High pressure will then resume control for the remainder of the week and high temperatures are likely to be confined to the 80’s after reaching the 90 degree mark this afternoon. Tropical Storm Chris may strengthen off the Carolina coastline over the next couple of days as it meanders around, but it should then be pushed to the northeast and even farther away from here by the end of the week.

7:00 AM | High pressure still in control...watching the tropics

Paul Dorian

High pressure controlled the weather around here this weekend and it will shift off the coast over the next couple of days. In addition, there will be a weak frontal passage late Tuesday and a strengthening tropical system (Chris) off the Carolina coastline. As a result, the heat and humidity will increase compared to the weekend and the weak front may trigger a few showers and thunderstorms.

7:00 AM | *One more round of showers and possible thunderstorms...very comfortable weekend coming following frontal passage*

Paul Dorian

A significant cool frontal passage will pass through the region today and break the back of our early July heat wave in the Mid-Atlantic region. In fact, high temperatures this afternoon will be reduced from recent days in the I-95 corridor, but the change in humidity won’t become noticeable until this evening. As the front slides through the region later today, there will be additional showers and possible thunderstorms and some of the rain can be heavy at times. High pressure from the Northern Plains will cross over the Great Lakes over the next 24 hours or so and then produce a very comfortable weekend in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor.

7:00 AM | *Significant cool frontal passage on Friday breaks the back of the heat wave and results in a very nice weekend*

Paul Dorian

Hot and humid weather will continue for another day in the Mid-Atlantic, but a significant cool frontal passage on Friday will bring noticeable relief by the weekend. Abnormally strong upper-level ridging over the Northeast US for the past few days is beginning to weaken and shift westward and this will open the door for cooler, drier high pressure from the Northern Plains to take control of our weather pattern for the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered this afternoon and then more widespread tonight and on Friday as the cool front slides through the region. Any rain that falls over the next 24-36 hours can be on the heavy side given the excessive humidity levels and slow movement of showers and thunderstorms cells underneath the strong upper-level high pressure ridge.

7:00 AM | *Better shot at showers and storms next few days and any rain that falls can be heavy...relief in temperatures and humidity by the weekend*

Paul Dorian

Abnormally strong upper-level ridging continues to dominate the scene in the Northeast US and Upper Midwest and the resultant hot, humid weather around here will continue through the work week. One change, however, is that here will be an increasing shot at scattered showers and thunderstorms over the next few days and rain will be quite likely on Friday as a cool front arrives. Given the excessive humidity in the area, any rain that falls can be heavy at times. The center of this high-level ridging will retrograde westward by later this week and become centered over the interior western US. As a result of that change in positioning, the flow of air in the upper atmosphere around here will become northwesterly and this will allow for the cool frontal passage as we head into the weekend.

7:00 AM | *Hot, humid weather continues through the work week, but relief comes this weekend*

Paul Dorian

Abnormally strong upper-level ridging continues to dominate the scene in the Northeast US and Great Lakes as we begin the new work week and the resultant hot weather around here will continue through the week. The center of this high-level ridging will retrograde westward over the next few days and become centered over the interior western US by the end of the week. As a result of that change in positioning, the flow of air in the upper atmosphere around here will become northwesterly by the end of the week and this will likely allow for a cool frontal passage as we head into the weekend. This end-of-week cool frontal passage should break the back of what is likely to end up being the worst stretch of heat and humidity in the Northeast US all summer long.
