445 PM EDT Sun Aug 28 2016
High pressure continued to build into the mid Atlantic region today,
keeping cloud cover at bay for most. A few showers and storms were
able to creep into the far western portions of our forecast area
ahead of the build mid level dry air early this afternoon, but
most witnessed a warm and sunny beginning to the week.
Temperatures consistently reached the mid to upper 80s with a few
places touching 90 degrees east of the Blue Ridge.
The area will remain in pattern that promotes above normal
temperatures with elevated humidity levels through at least the
middle of next week. Daytime heating and a series of weak fronts
will also keep isolated to scattered showers and storms in the
forecast, especially for areas along and west of the crest of the
Blue Ridge. A minor decrease in temperatures is expected toward
the end of next week as drier, and slightly cooler, high pressure
enters the region in the wake of a cold front.
