7:00 AM | *The heat is on for the next couple of days...possible strong-to-severe thunderstorm late tomorrow*

Paul Dorian

The warmest stretch of weather so far this season will continue for the next couple of days with highs near 90 degrees before it turns cooler and less humid for Sunday and Monday. There can be an isolated shower or thunderstorm late today or early tonight, but an even better chance exists for late tomorrow as a strong cold front arrives. Some of the thunderstorms that form late tomorrow can reach strong-to-severe levels. After a comfortable start to the new week, the heat and humidity will build up again by the middle of next week.

7:00 AM | *Shower/thunderstorm threat returns late tomorrow and it 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 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 to continue 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 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 | *Morning showers and storms to pull away...a real taste of summer during the second half of the week*

Paul Dorian

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a warm frontal passage will pull away later this morning and the afternoon promises to become quite warm and humid with partial sunshine. 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 on Wednesday, 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 | *Turns much more summer-like this week*

Paul Dorian

The first stretch of summer-like weather is coming our way this week and highs during the second half of the week will approach the 90 degrees on a daily basis. 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 late tonight and likely produce showers and thunderstorms from late tonight into Tuesday and some of the rain can be heavy at times. High pressure will build back into the area at mid-week and it’ll turn summer-like for the second half of the week.

7:00 AM | *Morning showers as front slides through...becoming windy later 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 clouds and lingering showers, 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 from a northwesterly direction and the humidity will drop sharply later today compared to 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 Mid-Atlantic region on Monday and Tuesday and temperatures will climb well into the 80's.

7:00 AM | **Strong-to-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. 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 30 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 are possible around here by Sunday night or Monday.

7:00 AM | *More showers likely today and a possible thunderstorm...strong-to-severe thunderstorm threat for late tomorrow/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 some of the rain can be heavy at times. Given the already well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can result in localized flooding conditions. Ingredients may be coming together for a severe weather outbreak in the I-95 corridor later tomorrow and tomorrow night. An unusually strong low pressure system will move over the western part of the Mid-Atlantic 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 is likely to take 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 | **Wet pattern continues here with heavy showers likely today and possible strong thunderstorms**

Paul Dorian

The threat exists here 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 a couple inches of rain in a short time. 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.
