WET WEATHER IS ON THE WAY AS A WEAK LOW PRESSURE AREA MOVES UP THE COAST… WILL WE CLEAR OUT IN TIME FOR NEXT WEEKEND?

As the high pressure system that brought a wonderful weekend to the Mid-Atlantic states moves offshore, a weak low pressure system is going to move up the East Coast. The moisture associated with this low should bring us showers beginning on Tuesday and the wet weather may last all the way through Thursday. The computer models differ on how fast this system will move away later in the week but for now, forecasters think that we should see improving conditions by Friday. This system has brought flooding rain to parts of the Florida peninsula over the weekend. The National Hurricane Center was watching this for possible tropical development but they have lowered the chances to 10% as of Monday morning. Speaking of the tropics, there are no areas of concern in the tropical Atlantic right now. That could change in the next few days, however. No real cool weather is in sight for our part of the country. What’s going on with the drought in Texas? Heavy rain has fallen in the central¬†portion of the state but have basically missed the eastern¬†areas of the state. That’s it for now. Have a great day.
