After patchy fog this morning, the rest of today will be warm and humid, with more sunshine than we saw Monday. We still have a slight chance for a few scattered showers and storms with a southeast breeze. High pressure remains off the New England coast, and the slow-moving upper low over the Southeast is drifting a bit farther south of us, keeping the best lift for rain and storms to our south today.
A warm front will lift northward through the area early Wednesday morning, shifting our winds from the southwest and helping highs Wednesday afternoon reach the low to mid 90s. A few storms will be possible in this very hot and humid air mass, but we are still looking to Thursday for our best chance of rain across the area.
A cold front will pass through Virginia Thursday, likely bringing showers and thunderstorms along and south of the front. You may need your rain gear at the first day of Redskins Training Camp if this front brings us much-needed rain.
The front looks like it will make it well south of us by Friday, but in case it lingers, we’re keeping a slight chance for a few more showers Friday morning.
Looking ahead to the weekend, the best outdoor day should be Saturday, with better rain chances arriving on Sunday. The pattern will support a continued chance for showers and thunderstorms into Monday.
A disturbance in the central Atlantic (Tropical Depression Two) is expected to continue to develop, possibly becoming our next named storm this week. If this system does become a tropical storm, it would be named Bertha.
Make your Tuesday great! And Stay With CBS 6, We’ll Keep You Ahead of the Storm.
