Big Changes in Weather Today!

Today: Showers this Morning, then Windy & Colder with Sunshine & Blue Skies, Falling Temperatures, High 55 This AM Falling this PM

Tonight: Clearing and Colder  Low: 32 City 20s in Suburbs

Thursday: Brisk & Cold Despite Sunshine High 42  Feels Like 30 Degrees

A broken line of showers on this morning's radar mosaic is pressing to the east, as is the latest cold front to emerge in the Eastern Region... It'll be a good idea to grab some rain gear for the first part of today, but it won't be needed for very long -- since there should be a tendency for some drier air to start filtering into the Tri-State Area during midday and especially this afternoon, which is when the sun will probably manage to pop out for at least a while... Temperatures early this morning are at least a few degrees above typical daytime high temperatures for this time of year... And, while rain will cause these temperatures to drop a little bit early, there shouldn't be too much of a drop occurring in the wake of the frontal passage during midday or this afternoon...

 We feel that the 'precipitous drop' that will eventually occur will be very late this afternoon or this evening, when it will drop into the 40s... Winds gusting to near 25 or even 30 mph this evening will be diminishing later tonight, and it will be noticeably colder tonight with most temperatures winding up in the 20s in most outlying areas and the 30s in the bigger cities... There should be a fair amount of sunshine tomorrow, but it'll be colder with most temperatures in the lower and the mid 40s... Friday, any early sun will probably start to fade behind increasing cloudiness, and after a very chilly start, most afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 40s to near 50... As a wave of low pressure located in the Great Lakes moves southeastern Canada on Friday night and Saturday, and it will be dragging a cold front across the region this weekend... This boundary will bring with it the potential for a bit of rain later on Friday night and Saturday, although neither time period looks like a 'wash-out'... In fact although temperatures across much of the mid Atlantic region and in the Northeast will be hard-pressed to get out of the 40s on Friday afternoon, Saturday appears as if it will be a milder day, with most temperatures either in the mid or in some cases the upper 50s...

Sunday, however, is probably going to be a rather cloudy and cooler day -- because by Sunday morning, the global models are all in agreement that a ridge of high pressure will be located over eastern Canada and northern New England, and a front should be in a position down near the Virginia-North Carolina border... So, with most winds having an easterly component, Sunday is looking fairly cloudy with most temperatures either in the upper 40s or the lower 50s... Then on Monday, that aforementioned front located to our south will be lifting out to the north, only this time, as a warm front... A plentiful supply of mild and moist air that will be surging northward along the Eastern Seaboard on Monday will push temperatures into the upper 50s and lower 60s, and as a wave of low pressure cuts up well to the north and west of the I-95 corridor, there should be a few periods of rain -- this will be followed by some chillier air by the middle of next week...

Have a great day!
