A little bit of irony as we approach Labor Day weekend in the Mid Atlantic. We just had three days in the row with highs reaching the 90s, but a cold front will help usher in a wind shift, bringing in cooler air off of the Atlantic. It will be comfortable in the for most of us (average high is 83F for Baltimore), but could feel a little chilly along the beaches with that wind off of the water, and perhaps lingering clouds.
This front is call ‘back door’ since it will arrive from the northeast (instead of west). Temperatures this morning show the muggy 70s holding on through metro New York City, but 50s and 40s in northern New England. That is the push moving the front our way. So Cecil County might be the first in Maryland to see showers this afternoon, and the movement will push towards the west and southwest. It may take until later in the day or evening for most of us to feel the heat relief, but it is on the way. Here is a look at today’s simulated radar showing the showers and a few storms this afternoon and evening. Then see the wind maps below showing the regional flow.
