Premium Weekly Outlook: More active, progressive pattern this week

Good morning and happy Monday! Overall it was a beautiful weekend, especially more and lower humidity on Sunday. But a more active, progressive weather pattern is expected this week. This comes as a strong heat ridge begins building over the Rockies and Western Plains this week and the AO/NAO remains positive with lack of high-latitude blocking. This pattern will some ridging build at times into region this week with more heat and humidity. But also multiple disturbances to move from the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, with threats for showers and thunderstorms this week.

First off for today, high pressure will be moving off the Mid-Atlantic coast, with a return southerly flow developing over the region. Mostly sunny skies are expected this morning, then some clouds will be increasing and filtering the sunshine, as warm front approaches.  Humidity will begin increasing later this afternoon as dew point rise into 60s. More lift and instability, ahead of warm front may led a few isolated showers or thunderstorms popping up over the region later this afternoon. Temperatures will rise into lower to middle 80s this afternoon, over much of the region. More south-southwest winds today will allow for more sea-breezes to keep coastal sections in the 70s much of this afternoon.
