7:00 AM | *The heat is on for the next couple of days with highs in the 90's...possible strong thunderstorm late tomorrow*

Paul Dorian

The warmest stretch of weather so far this season will continue for the next two days with highs in the 90's, but it'll turn slightly cooler less humid by the time Monday rolls around. There can be isolated thunderstorm later today and early tonight and an even better chance is likely late tomorrow as a strong cold front arrives. There is a chance that some of the thunderstorms late tomorrow and early tomorrow night reach strong-to-severe levels. After a more comfortable start to the new work week, the heat and humidity will build up by the middle of next week.

7:00 AM | *Shower/thunderstorm threat returns late tomorrow and will continue on Saturday*

Paul Dorian

High pressure will continue to control the weather around here today providing us with another day of sunshine and very warm conditions. The humidity will increase today as the temperatures climb to or slightly above the 90 degree mark for afternoon highs. Temperatures will climb to 90 degrees on Friday afternoon as well and there can be some shower and thunderstorms activity late in the day and tomorrow night and the threat for showers and storms will continue on Saturday as a frontal system approaches the region. It’ll turn a bit cooler early next week following the passage of the frontal system.

7:00 AM | *Summer-like weather continues into the weekend*

Paul Dorian

High pressure will build into the area today and help produce plenty of sunshine to go along with quite warm temperatures and moderate humidity levels. Temperatures will climb to or slightly above 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday and there will be an increase in humidity as well in this first extended stretch of summer-like weather for our area. There can be some shower and thunderstorm activity late Friday, Friday night and Saturday as a frontal system approaches the region. It’ll turn a bit cooler early next week following the frontal passage.

7:00 AM | *Summer-like heat and humidity for the rest of the week*

Paul Dorian

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a warm frontal passage will pull away this morning from the Mid-Atlantic coastline and some sunshine will return to the area by this afternoon to go along with very warm and humid conditions. The second half of the week will feature the first extended stretch of summer weather so far this year in the Mid-Atlantic region with high temperatures near 90 degrees tomorrow and then in the 90's on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A couple of weak disturbances this weekend could bring a return of showers and thunderstorms to the Mid-Atlantic region and it should turn slightly cooler early next week.

7:00 AM | *The first extended stretch of summer-like weather coming this week*

Paul Dorian

The first stretch of summer-like weather is coming our way this week and highs much of the week will be at or slightly above the 90 degree mark. High pressure will push offshore today and lose control of our weather after providing a very nice weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region. A warm front will lift through the region later today and then a weak cold front will arrive on Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms are likely from later today into the late night hours and some of the rain can be heavy at times. High pressure will build back into the area later tomorrow and it’ll turn summer-like here into the weekend with daily highs at or above 90 degrees.

7:00 AM | *Windy today with lowering humidity setting the stage for a decent weekend*

Paul Dorian

A strong cold front is passing through the region early today with lingering clouds, but it’ll pave the way for a nice break in the action from the recent very wet weather pattern here in the Mid-Atlantic. Winds will increase noticeably today from a northwesterly direction and the humidity levels will drop sharply today from recent days. High pressure building over southeastern Canada should be strong enough and close enough to produce decent weather around here through much of the upcoming weekend. More showers and thunderstorms will likely return to the region on Monday and Tuesday and temperatures each day may approach the 90 degree mark for highs.

7:00 AM | **Severe thunderstorm threat later today/early tonight and then a break in the action**

Paul Dorian

An unusually strong low pressure system for the 20th of June will move towards northwestern Pennsylvania by later today and a strong surface cold front will slide towards the east coast. At the same time, a powerful wave of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere will move over the Mid-Atlantic region. As a result, there can be an outbreak of severe thunderstorms from later this afternoon into early tonight that could impact the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor with damaging wind gusts, hail and even a few isolated tornadoes. Once the strong cold front clears the coast by early tomorrow, the threat for rain will wind down, humidity will drop, and the winds will pick up noticeably from a northwesterly direction gusting to 35 mph at times. High pressure will build into the area later tomorrow and it may just stay in control for most of the upcoming weekend, but more showers and thunderstorms are possible here by Sunday night and Monday.

7:00 AM | *More heavy showers today and possible thunderstorms...severe thunderstorm threat later tomorrow afternoon/early tomorrow night*

Paul Dorian

A nearly stationary frontal system draped across the Mid-Atlantic region will continue to act as a focal point for showers and thunderstorms today and tonight and any shower or storm can produce heavy rainfall as they will be slow movers. Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can quickly result in localized flooding conditions. Ingredients may be coming together for a severe weather outbreak in the I-95 corridor later tomorrow afternoon and early tomorrow night. An unusually strong low pressure system for mid-June will move over the western part of the Mid-Atlantic by later tomorrow and a strong surface cold front will slide towards the east coast. At the same time, a powerful wave of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere will move over the Mid-Atlantic region. As a result, there can be an outbreak of severe thunderstorms late on Thursday that could impact the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor. Once the strong cold front clears the coast by early Friday, the threat for rain will end, humidity will drop, and the winds will pick up noticeably from a northwesterly direction. High pressure may stay in control for much of the weekend, but more rain is possible here by early next week.

11:45 AM (Tuesday) | **Threat continues today for downpours and strong-to-severe thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic region…severe weather threat along the I-95 corridor late Thursday as well**

Paul Dorian

A nearly stationary frontal boundary zone is combining today with tropical-like humidity and upper-level energy to generate more showers and thunderstorms in the Mid-Atlantic region and this threat for rain will continue tonight and Wednesday as well.  Some of the rain that falls will be heavy and some of the storms that form later today will reach strong-to-severe levels potentially resulting in damaging wind gusts and even isolated tornadoes.  Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rain can quickly produce localized flooding conditions with a couple of inches possible in a short period of time.  Later in the week, the combination of a strong surface low pressure system and associated cold front with powerful energy aloft will likely result in a severe weather outbreak in the I-95 corridor from later Thursday into Thursday night before a break in the action arrives for Friday and Saturday.

7:00 AM | **Threat continues today for heavy showers and strong-to-severe thunderstorms**

Paul Dorian

The threat continues today for heavy showers and possible strong-to-severe thunderstorms. A nearly stationary frontal system draped across the Mid-Atlantic region will continue to act as a triggering mechanism for showers and thunderstorms and some of the rain that falls will be heavy at times. Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can quickly result in localized flooding conditions and some spots could receive an additional few inches on top of what has already fallen in recent days. A strong front may finally push through the region later Thursday night/early Friday and this could pave the way for a break in the action for later Friday and the upcoming weekend. That frontal passage, however, may come with the threat for severe weather late Thursday into Thursday night before windy and drier conditions arrive here on Friday.
