Discussion

A very active weather pattern is setting up for the next week or two partly as a result of continuing cold air outbreaks into the central and eastern US. These cold air outbreaks will combine with increasing warmth and moisture across the southern US to make it quite unstable on many days going forward in many parts of the nation. In the short-term, a warm front will generate showers and thunderstorms in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor from later today into Wednesday and some of the storms that form can be on the strong-to-severe side. A strong cold front will then drop southeastward across the area later Thursday and it will be accompanied by showers, perhaps a strong thunderstorm, and increasing winds which will remain quite strong on Thursday night and Friday as well. Another storm system could impact the Mid-Atlantic region late in the weekend or by the early part of next and then another system could follow a few days later in this unfolding very active weather pattern.
