Discussion: A couple waves of low pressure lie along a frontal boundary draped across the Carolinas. Here in the northeast, High Pressure is in control and should remain in place into early next week. It slowly departs south and east with an approaching cold front late on Tuesday. Behind the front, high pressure builds back in for the remainder of the week. An upper level ridge continues to dominate the central and southwestern US. A trough swings down from Canada into the northeast on Wednesday.
Abundant sunshine is the theme this weekend. Temperatures are expected to edge above normal early next week, but there is no sustained warmth to speak of in the medium range. Tuesday is looking increasingly supportive for a hefty line of late day thunderstorms to come through. The probability for severe weather remains low at this time, but the rain may offer some relief with the abnormally dry pattern we are in.
