Off to America’s first state, and the capital Dover for the weekend forecast. I think it’s going to be a mildly interesting forecast.
At 1255PM, ET, Dover was already reporting a temperature of 82 degrees with partly cloudy skies. A weak surface low was feeding off of some fairly widespread instability in the center of the country, triggering showers and thunderstorms for most of the Ohio Valley and importing the clouds seen in Delaware.
The weak wave aloft feeding the weak circulation at the surface has certainly hung around much longer than was initially forecast, but it’s influence will continue to wane with a strong trough over the northwest moving into Upper Midwest. Still, the remnant moisture of the weak surface system will work it’s way into the Mid-Atlantic, bringing the threat for some murky skies and passing showers for the extent of the weekend.
