Every morning while forecasting for the coming day, I read the Baltimore/Washington DC National Weather Service area forecast discussion (abbreviated AFD). Over the past 2 days, the AFD's have been the shortest I've seen them since last summer! Short AFD's mean simple weather - I'll take it!
High pressure will stay in place all the way through Saturday, with a cold front moving through the area on Sunday. By the time the cold front arrives here, there will be little if any precipitation with it. Temperatures will stay above average into next week - not quite the 80's that we'll see Friday and Saturday, but still above average.
We're going through a bit of a dry period these next few days. Precipitation is not in the forecast again until late next week. That being said, the combination of warm and dry air staying in the region does enhance our fire threat.
If you're traveling this weekend in and around the Commonwealth or West Virginia, the weather looks great! The traffic? No promises there.
Enjoy our taste of summer!
