High pressure continues to hold strong across the mid-Atlantic, New England and the Great Lakes. It will remain entrenched as a disturbance passes well south of Washington later tomorrow and Friday. This will keep our region under a very cool, but dry air mass. As we get into the weekend, we will be watching the southeast Atlantic coast. Computer models have consistently developed an area of low pressure in that area over the weekend. Computer simulations strengthen this, not yet formed, system and move it adjacent the mid-Atlantic coastline. It appears we will be on the western fringes of the system and therefore, we are keeping the probability of rain at 30% for Sunday. If the storm gets a little closer…then more noticeable impacts will be possible. Should it move a little farther off shore, we could wind up with just a cloudy and cool day. We will have until the storm forms to get a better handle on its intensity and movement. At that point, we will be able to give more details on possible effects on our area.
