Mid-Atlantic – The Week Ahead (Mar 21-27)

Sorry about the delay, but here we go.

After the initial batch of rain today, skies should slowly clear out as a westerly wind tries to bring the region into the upper 60s to lower 70s. A cold front coming down from the north could trigger some stronger thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, a few of which may become severe. While not chase-worthy, they could be something to snap a picture of if they come in locally.

Tuesday and Wednesday will keep some of the warmth around as the next system approaches from the west. Rain is expected late Tuesday into early Wednesday, with some clearing before another round of rain and thunderstorms moves through Wednesday afternoon and evening. There is a better chance at getting severe storms on Wednesday, and it will be monitored for chase potential.

Cooler air will come in behind this system, with light rain showers on Thursday giving way to mostly sunny skies on Friday. The fairer weather will be short-lived as another system forms off to the west, which will push rain into the region Saturday into Sunday. Right now this weekend’s system appears to be just boring rain, but a couple of small changes is all it would take to get thunderstorms on Sunday.
