7:00 AM | *A soaking rain event this weekend*

Paul Dorian

Showers and thunderstorms are possible later today and again tonight as a cold front arrives in the region and this front will then stall in the Mid-Atlantic this weekend. Low pressure will pull out of the Tennessee Valley on Saturday and ride along the stalled out boundary zone and right towards the Mid-Atlantic region. As a result, more rain is likely here from later tomorrow into Sunday morning and some of it can be heavy at times; especially, in the overnight hours. Nicer weather will return early next week as high pressure follows the departing weekend low pressure system.

7:00 AM | **Major league warm up today follows passage of warm front...possible late day strong thunderstorms**

Paul Dorian

A frontal system to our south this morning will push northward as a warm front later in the day and temperatures are likely to soar to the mid 80’s in the DC metro region. Showers and thunderstorms are likely later today and again tonight and then are likely to threaten us later tomorrow and tomorrow night as a cold front approaches the area. Some of the late day storms can be on the strong side in what will be a very warm and humid air mass. That cold front will then stall in the Mid-Atlantic region this weekend and a wave of low pressure will bring more showers and thunderstorms here from later Saturday into early Sunday and this system has the potential for some heavy rainfall.

7:00 AM | *Looking like rain chances will continue into the weekend*

Paul Dorian

An onshore flow of air and persistent cloud cover today will knock several degrees off the temperatures compared to Tuesday, but then we’ll turn noticeably warmer on Thursday afternoon with highs likely to be near 85 degrees. A frontal system to our south today will push northward as a warm front early Thursday and then another (cold) front will arrive on Friday night. That front will stall in the Mid-Atlantic region this weekend and a wave of low pressure will bring more showers and thunderstorms to the region from later Saturday into early Sunday.

7:00 AM | *Warmer today and a shot at late afternoon showers and thunderstorms*

Paul Dorian

High pressure will lose control of the weather around here today and a frontal system will meander in the Mid-Atlantic region for much of the week and weekend. As a result, our temperatures will tend to bounce up and down with today and Thursday becoming quite warm, but it’ll be cooler on Wednesday as low-level winds become southeasterly for a short time. Also, there will be multiple shots at showers and thunderstorms this week as this frontal system oscillates in the region, but much rain-free time as well.

7:00 AM | *An unsettled and warm week with multiple shots at showers and thunderstorms*

Paul Dorian

The new week will start off with high pressure in control, but it will have a short-term benefit as an overall active weather pattern will bring us multiple shots at showers and thunderstorms this week. A frontal system will meander around the Mid-Atlantic region for much of the week and bring us some very warm weather and also occasional showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures for Tuesday and Thursday should be the mid 80's with upper 70's likely on Wednesday as our low-level winds turn easterly for a short time. A cold front may arrive at the end of the week and this could end the unsettled spell of weather for at least part of the upcoming weekend.

10:00 AM (Friday) | **Strong-to-severe thunderstorm threat later today/early tonight…strong winds late tonight and Saturday will follow the passage of a strong cold frontal system**

Paul Dorian

There will be numerous bands of showers and thunderstorms today in the Mid-Atlantic as the combination of strong surface low pressure, a warm front and a cold front impacts the region.  One line of storms in particular could reach the I-95 corridor region later in the afternoon and early evening hours with strong-to-severe thunderstorm activity and any these cells can produce damaging wind gusts, hail and flooding rainfall.  Following the passage of the cold front, temperatures will drop dramatically in the overnight hours and winds will become very strong from a northwesterly direction.  The strong winds will continue on Saturday to go along with cooler conditions and partly-to-mainly sunny skies.

7:00 AM | **Occasional rain and possible thunderstorms today and the threat of a line of strong-to-severe thunderstorms during the late afternoon/early evening...windy late tonight & Saturday**

Paul Dorian

Low pressure will push to our northwest today and the combination of a warm front this morning and a cold front late today will bring us occasional rain and possible thunderstorms as well as the threat of a line of strong-to-severe thunderstorms between 3 and 9 PM. Any late day/early evening thunderstorm can produce damaging wind gusts, torrential rainfall with localized flooding, and there is even the threat for isolated tornadoes. Temperatures will warm up later today following the passage of the warm front, but will drop dramatically late tonight after the cold frontal passage and winds will whip out of the NW towards morning. Strong winds are to continue on Saturday to go along with mainly sunny skies and cooler conditions. Another cold front arrives on Sunday and it too can result in some shower activity for the Mid-Atlantic region. An overall active weather pattern will bring us additional chances for rain around here later next week.

7:00 AM | *Showers are possible this morning and then occasional showers are likely later today and tonight...occasional rain on Friday and perhaps a strong thunderstorm*

Paul Dorian

Low pressure will push from the central Plains towards the Ohio Valley later today and tonight and it will push a warm frontal system into the region by early tomorrow which will be followed by the passage of a cold frontal system on Friday night. A couple of showers are possible this morning across the DC metro region and occasional showers are likely later today and tonight. On Friday, it'll turn warmer and there will be occasional rain and perhaps a strong thunderstorm or two. Some of the rain can be heavy at times later tomorrow just ahead of the strong cold frontal system. Winds will pick up noticeably late tomorrow night and Saturday will be a windy, dry day with cooler conditions and mainly sunny skies. Another strong cold front arrives on Sunday with the likelihood of more shower activity in the Mid-Atlantic region.

7:00 AM | *Next rain threat arrives on Thursday and continues through Friday*

Paul Dorian

A cool frontal system passed through the region last night and today will be slightly cooler with a noticeable NW breeze at times. High pressure will continue to control our weather as we begin the day on Thursday, but showers are possible by the afternoon and quite likely tomorrow night. The shower threat will continue here on Friday and there can be a thunderstorm mixed in as well as low pressure pushes a couple of frontal systems through our region. Dry weather is likely to start the weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region, but another shower threat is possible on Sunday as a strong cold front approaches from the northwest.

7:00 AM | *A passing shower possible tonight, but a better chance for rain comes Thursday night and Friday*

Paul Dorian

High pressure takes control of our weather today, but then a cold front can bring a passing shower here tonight, but this does not look like a significant rain event. After nice weather on Wednesday and Thursday, the combination of northern and southern stream systems could result in more substantial rain here from Thursday night into Friday.
