High pressure is building into our area. You could see that happening today as skies cleared and temperatures climbed well into the 70s. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible into the early evening hours. Tomorrow will feature partly cloudy skies and very warm temperatures. High are forecast to be in the 80s across the region.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible during the afternoon but they will become likely Friday night as a cold front slowly approaches. More showers and thunderstorms are likely on Saturday.  Check out the front and associated precipitation sliding through the mid-Atlantic Saturday afternoon.

By Sunday, the cold front will have moved out of the area and skies will clear. We are forecasting partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 60s on Mother’s Day. Looking ahead to Monday and Tuesday…unseasonably cold temperatures are expected on Monday and Tuesday mornings. In fact, scattered frost is not out of the question on Monday morning and especially on Tuesday morning. Yep…areas of frost on the 13th and 14th of May. Go figure!
