Off we go to the East Coast for today’s forecast. After getting drenched earlier in the week, will they get a reprieve, or does Mother Nature have another cruel trick up her sleeve?
At 7:53pm, the temperature was 54 degrees under fair skies in Cumberland. An upper-level trough is digging in over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley, which will eventually form a cut-off low over the region. A mid-level disturbance weakly defined at the surface looks to drop out of Ohio down to the Southern Appalachians. An area of low pressure sitting offshore the Carolinas will slowly lift north along the coast before pushing into the Hudson River Valley later on Monday. This means some increasing clouds tomorrow for Western MD so temperatures should still make it into the low to mid 60’s by afternoon. A few scattered showers will filter into the area late Sunday evening, then with the low off the coast moving northward, combining with the weaker disturbance to the west, creates a chance of showers throughout the day on Monday. Rainfall amounts shouldn’t be too terribly high though, with heavier amounts staying off to the east. Then again, the last thing this region needs is any more rain.

Here we see the system off to the west slowly pushing towards Cumberland, with clouds associated with that low pressure off the Carolina coastline. Looks like the umbrellas will need to be brought out once again.
