A weak boundary across the Mid-Atlantic and a strong area of low pressure system will give us daily chances of storms through much of the week. The best time to see showers and storms will be during the afternoon and tapering off in the evening. Some storms could contain some heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds. As we head toward midweek we’ll watch a low pressure system slowly head our way. This low will continue to give us a chance for showers and storms, but without any real triggering mechanism these should remain diurnally driven. The low, which could be tropical in nature, will be moving up the coastline. This will give us a more easterly flow which will increase our low level moisture and trigger more showers and thunderstorms. A stronger frontal boundary heads our way by Saturday. This front will trigger numerous showers and storms, especially the first part of the weekend.

TONIGHT

Slow moving showers and storms look to linger into the evening. Eventually the atmosphere will become more stable overnight and skies will be partly cloudy with areas of patchy fog. Lows in the 60s and 70s.

TUESDAY

Partly to mostly sunny and hot. Scattered showers and storms will once again develop in the afternoon. Storms look to fire near a lingering front and they could also move in from our South. These storms will likely be associated with the area of low pressure to our South. Highs again in the 80s and 90s.

WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY

We are closely watching an area of low pressure to our South. Location of this low will be the key if it develops into a tropical system or not. As of now, both days will likely see showers and storms from this system. Highs look to remain in the 80s with a few 90s possible.

FRIDAY

Partly sunny with increasing heat and humidity. We pick up a good chance for a few showers and thunderstorms, especially if that low is lingering nearby. Our high closes in on 90.

THE WEEKEND

It looks like we’ll see a hot and humid weekend with highs in the lower 90s. We have a chance of showers and storms, especially on Saturday as a front moves closer.
