514 AM EDT Thu Mar 30 2017
High pressure led to a nice day of weather on Wednesday, with
yesterday`s highs well into the 60s to middle 70s. However,
easterly onshore flow and cold air damming up against the Blue
Ridge overnight has led to overcast conditions overnight. Despite
the cold air damming, temperatures overnight were relatively mild
in the 50s.
Damp, dreary, cloudy and cool conditions will persist through
early tonight as cold air damming will be tough to erode.
Cold air damming will weaken overnight, setting the stage for
periods of moderate to at times heavy showers and embedded
thunderstorms overnight into early Friday. A re-development of
showers and thunderstorms is also possible with daytime heating
Friday afternoon. In both thunderstorm situations, storms could
turn strong but limited in areal coverage.
Quieter weather returns for the weekend with temperatures trending
