High pressure—the source of yesterday’s nice weather—has slid off the Atlantic Coast tonight as a cold front marches in from the west. We should cash it on a bit of morning sunshine before the clouds thicken with the approaching cold front. Temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 60s by the afternoon before showers and a few thunderstorms arrive in association with the front. The rain will diminish early tonight and drier air will return in the wake of the front. However, there is not much cool air behind this first cold front so Saturday will turn out to be a milder day with highs in the lower 70s under a partly sunny sky. There will be a second cold front that will traverse the region Saturday afternoon which may bring a passing shower or two. More importantly, this front will be stronger and bring an increase in winds late Saturday and also cooler temperatures. This will mean highs will hold in the middle 60s on Sunday, despite the efforts of sunshine. Monday remains cools with highs only in the 60s with a wet period likely for a good chunk of next week. Have a great day!

Daily Eye Wonder Weather photos and images
One might say this was a bell weather day for the Sierra Nevada mountains. In January, just as the Sun was setting above the district of Albayzín in Grenada, Spain, a huge cloud appeared as a bell capping the Veleta peak. Such a Cap cloud is formed by air forced upwards by a mountain peak, with the air then cooling, saturating with moisture, and finally having its molecular water condense into cloud droplets. Such a bell-shaped cloud structure is unusual as air typically moves horizontally, making most clouds nearly flat across at the bottom. Vertical waves can also give additional lenticular cloud layers, as also seen above. Given the fleeting extent of the great cloud coupled with momentarily excellent sunset coloring, one might considered this also a bellwether day for an accomplished photographer.
