Regional Weather: Southeast / mid-Atlantic U.S.

Chance of showers Southeast; dry mid-Atlantic. Another front has dropped into the upper Southeast, where it will linger into the weekend. Otherwise, high pressure at the surface and aloft dominate. Along and south of the front, scattered showers and storms fire each day. In the mid-Atlantic, north of the front, the environment is much less conducive and no rain is anticipated. Hot, with highs fully in the 90s and lows in the 70s.

 

OUTLOOK:
