7:00 AM | Weekend warmup peaks on Sunday, but will be short-lived…another cool air mass arrives early next week

Saturday

Clouds and perhaps a touch of drizzle early then becoming partly sunny and warmer, near 80

Saturday Night

Partly cloudy, mild, low 60’s

Sunday

Partly sunny, warm, showers and thunderstorms possible late in the day and at night, low 80’s

Monday

Mostly sunny, cooler, low 70’s

Tuesday

Mostly sunny, quite cool, near 70

Wednesday

Mostly sunny, quite cool, near 70

Discussion

Strong high pressure centered over New England this morning will shift off the New England coastline by tomorrow and this movement will generate an increasing southwesterly flow of air in the Mid-Atlantic region during the weekend along with increasingly warm conditions. Temperatures today will hold in the low 70's for highs, but will increase noticeably tomorrow afternoon and then likely peak on Sunday afternoon in the low 80's. The weekend warmup will be short-lived, however, as another cool front will generate showers and thunderstorms late Sunday and then usher in cooler air for the early and middle parts of next week.

Discussion

A weak cool front will pass through the region later today and this will usher in reinforcing cool air for the Mid-Atlantic region to close out the work week. In fact, high temperatures on Friday will struggle to pass the 70 degree mark with high pressure centered over New England producing a cool flow of air out of the northeast. By the weekend, this high will shift offshore and this movement will allow the winds to shift to a southwesterly direction and we’ll get increasingly warmer over the weekend. By Sunday afternoon, much of the I-95 corridor from DC-to-NYC will experience high temperatures at or above the 80 degree mark, but the late weekend warmup will be rather short-lived. Another cool front will usher in a cool air mass by Monday and those cooler-than-normal conditions should continue into mid-week.

Discussion

The odds for a "beltway" World Series took a step forward last night and there will be great weather today for those in Baltimore and DC who are in a celebratory mood. A weak cool front passed through the region early yesterday and high pressure has regained control and will stay in control for the rest of the week. Temperatures will continue to run at below normal levels over the next few days with highs generally in the 70’s along the I-95 corridor and nighttime lows in the cool lower-to-middle 50’s. As high pressure pushes off the Northeast coastline this weekend, our low-level winds will become southwesterly and it'll turn warmer. In fact, the warmest of the next five days is likely to be Sunday with 80+ degrees for high temperatures. That weekend warm up will be short-lived, however, as a cool front should usher in cooler air during the early part of next week. Elsewhere, flooding rains can be expected in Arizona and New Mexico over the next couple of days from the remains of Hurricane Odile.

Discussion

A weak cool front is working its way through the region this morning and high pressure will resume control of our weather this afternoon and evening. In fact, high pressure from the Midwest will control the weather scene in the northeastern quadrant of the country from later today through the remainder of the week. Temperatures will remain below normal for this time of year with highs generally in the 70’s along the I-95 corridor during the next several days. The normal high for Reagan National Airport in DC on this date is 80 degrees and the first half of September ended 3.9 degrees above normal due primarily to a very warm opening week.

Elsewhere, the remains of Hurricane Odile will spread heavy rainfall into Arizona and New Mexico over the next few days with several inches likely by the end of the week. This active tropical pattern in the eastern Pacific will continue in the foreseeable future as the next tropical system, Polo, is already getting organized. Polo could very well spread additional rains into the Baja region and Southwest US during the next week to ten days. Meanwhile, in the Atlantic Basin, Hurricane Edouard churns along as a category 2 storm and it continues to pose no threat to land.
