Forecast Discussion

High pressure shifting to the Mid-Atlantic coastline today will promote milder, southerly breezes after a cold start to the day.

The warm-up gets tarnished for one day on Wednesday as overrunning moist air gets pushed up the retreating cool dome. This will promote a grayer day with some spotty light rain, along with cooler daytime temperatures.

The lid comes off for Thursday and Friday with full-on springtime conditions.

A cold front will bring a line of showers through here late Friday night and early Saturday; Otherwise, we’ve got a good-looking weekend lined-up with pleasant temperatures and sunshine.

The next weather-maker will be in here by Sunday night/Monday with more rainfall potential.
