of the area through the rest of the weekend and into next week as a series of weak cold fronts cross the region. These fronts will bring with them little if any precipitation. The sprawling surface ridge will then cross the region Wednesday and settle over the western Atlantic Ocean late in the week.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/... A couple showers have popped up over West Virginia this evening. An isolated shower cannot be ruled out in the Allegheny and Potomac Highlands this evening...but most places will end up dry. Latest mesoanalysis shows little to no instability east of the Allegheny Highlands.
High pressure will continue to build from the west tonight. A west to northwest flow ahead of the high will usher in dry and comfortable conditions for this time of year. Min temps will range from the 50s in the Allgheny and Potomac Highlands...to the 60s across most other locations...to the low 70s in downtown Washington and Baltimore.
SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... Upper level troughing over the northeastern US will define the rest of the weekend and early week period, with a sprawling surface high developing over the Midwest and Ohio Valley. This will allow several weak frontal features to drop through the northeast states during this time.
The first will cross portions of the northeast on Sunday. For the most part this will remain off to our northeast, with westerly flow and a mix of sun and clouds. Highs from 75-85F. Fair weather continues Sunday night, with temperatures cooling off into the 50s/60s.
The next weak frontal passage will occur on Monday, bringing with it additional cumulus and perhaps a few isolated showers. Highs Monday in the 70s to around 80F, dropping off at night into the 50s to around 60F.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... Upper level trough and its associated surface reflection will slide east, and its axis will move across our area Tuesday. This trough could create enough instability to allow for some showers and thunderstorms mainly Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will be below normal with highs in the 60s and 70s, and lows in the 40s and 50s.
Surface high pressure builds east Tuesday night, then moves offshore late Wednesday, settling as a Bermuda high into Thursday as flow becomes more southerly. Temperatures will be on the rise and dry conditions continue into Thursday night. Guidance suggest that upper level energy could bring showers and thunderstorms over parts of our area Friday into Saturday. Cold front approaches from west on Saturday.
