Forecast Discussion

Making it ways through the area currently is a cold front, albeit a weakening one. This front is not going to be enough to give us a whole lot in the way in precipitation before it weakens. A trough will develop along the upper East Coast, which could push a few spotty showers into the extreme eastern half of the state late this afternoon/early evening. Another brief, and weakening cold front enters the area, and then dies by Friday morning. A low pressure system way off in the Plains will put us in a warm spot by the beginning of the weekend. The system plows a cold front through the area, quickly pursued by its own high pressure on Sunday Night and Monday morning, but it will get halted quickly by a high pressure in the east, causing to front become stationary down to our south by Monday afternoon. What does all this mean? It will rain, and temperatures are going to become a bit cooler by the end of the forecast period.
