... Weak low pressure will continue to move through our south the rest of today. High pressure will build tonight through Wednesday. A cold front will pass through the area Thursday and high pressure will return for Friday into the weekend.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH REST OF TODAY/... At the surface, a weak low pressure system will continue to move eastward south of our region as light scattered precipitation continues to move over our area. Upper level disturbance is moving across the region this afternoon and it has triggered additional showers over our area as well as an increase in cloud cover. Expecting showers to be isolated to scattered before they start diminishing in coverage this evening as high pressure starts to build over our area.
SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/... High pressure will be building from the west Monday night and remain in control through Wednesday. Dry and chilly conditions are expected tonight and Tuesday night with temperatures below normal (in the 20s and low 30s). Clear to mostly clear skies and a building return flow will allow for mild temperatures during the daytime hours, especially Wednesday ahead of a cold front, when temperatures can reach the upper 50s.
A cold front will approach from the west on Wednesday night and a few showers are possible ahead of it, especially west of the Blue Ridge. Expecting light amount as limited moisture is associated with this front.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... On Thursday a cold front will approach our region from the Midwest. The models agree that the precipitation from this front will start to affect our region late Wednesday into early Thursday. It seems the mostly likely starting time frame will be after 00Z on Thursday with the optimal starting period being 00Z to 12Z. Precipitation will likely start over eastern West Virginia, western Virginia and western Maryland initially and slowly move eastward on Thursday. Models are showing mostly scattered showers with not a lot of moisture associated with this frontal passage. Temperatures will trend upwards ahead of the cold front with temperatures peaking in the mid to upper 50s. Most of the precipitation should be out of the area by Thursday evening with some lingering upslope induced precipitation possible over the higher elevations in western Maryland and Virginia.
Behind the frontal passage, high pressure will build into our region from the upper Midwest and linger through Sunday. A few upslope showers Friday morning can't be ruled out in eastern West Virginia and western Maryland. Winds will become northwest to westerly leading to temperatures remaining mild for this time of the year. By the end of this weekend, temperatures are expected to trend back upwards as high as the 70 degree mark.
