Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 6:44PM

Warmer on Friday

High pressure moves off the mid Atlantic coast by later tonight. This sets us up for a warming trend with temperatures beginning to head upward to above normal for the next several days. The trade off? A pattern change begins to take place as a more west to east flow allows for several systems to move into the area bringing chances of showers and even some thunder beginning Saturday night.

Forecast Discussion

As high pressure slides south and east, winds will begin to shift to a warmer direction and as a result temperatures respond warming at or above normal starting Friday.

With the moderating temperatures comes a overall change in our weather pattern as a more west to east zonal flow begins to set up across the US. 1. This keeps the cold air locked up across Canada. 2. A more active set up takes shape as systems progress across the country bringing precipitation chances.

The first chance will come late Saturday night and into the day on Sunday as low pressure pulls out of the southwest and into the Ohio River Valley. Clouds increase during the day Saturday with showers arriving perhaps as early as late Saturday night. Showers on Sunday appear to be a good bet and at least the possibility of a shower or two continues Monday. That system moves out on Monday but another one on its heels will pretty much take the same path bringing more shower chances once again on Tuesday.

With respect to thunder chances, we are now getting into that time of year where we will have to factor that into the weather forecasting equation. Instability for Sunday's system appears weak at this point to where it warrants not really mentioning. But there is a little more in the way of instability to work with for Tuesday's system, so will add a slight chance of a thundershower. However severe weather isn't expected at this time.
