As a cold front slowly moves from PA into MD, scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are developing…and some have become severe. These storms will continue to form and move across the area through this evening. After the storms end, it will remain very warm and muggy overnight. Temperatures will only reach the lower 90s tomorrow but humidity levels will remain fairly high and with the cold front still close to the area…more showers and thunderstorms are possible. By Friday, temperatures will drop to more a more bearable range in the middle 80s. An area of low pressure passing close to our area may trigger more scattered showers and thunderstorm. By the weekend, high pressure will start to build back across the region. An isolated shower or storm is possible on Saturday. Otherwise, we expect Saturday and Sunday to be partly cloudy with highs in the middle to upper 80s.
