Dry and mild pattern through the weekend


Dry and mild pattern expected for several days

High pressure along the surface is going to be hovering overhead and that will lead to a good deal of sunshine.  This feature will continue meandering over the mid-Atlantic region through the weekend so I expect little change in the overall pattern.  There won’t be nearly as much high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere this week as the ridge that helped heat us is much flatter and so less heat can be generated.  Bottom line, cooler and drier air.

Highs will reach the middle to low 80s most locations for the next day or so then gradually rise near 90 over the weekend.  There may be a slight chance for a rogue storm to arrive from time to time as different variables will assist in the storm development but nothing widespread and I don’t expect any severe weather either.

Watch our special show on this website called Eye of the Storm.  It is a weekly Video blog about the tropics.  Hosted by Wes Hohenstein, Chief Meteorologist at our sister station in Raleigh, NC, it panels different meteorologists around the country about tropical systems.  I will be part of the show tonight (Episode 7) which you can find on this website WFXRtv.com in the dropdown menu under “weather”.  Should be fun and informative.
