Temperatures rise to the warmest this season

Warmer than average readings under a strong mid-Atlantic high pressure system will continue to dominate our weather through Wednesday. Temperatures will easily be at its highest so far this year; and in many places topping off into the mid 80s. Our next big change arrives, with a developing storm right now in the desert southwest. This will bring a strong cold front and enough energy to weaken our ridge of high pressure. I'm confident with the current forecast, with showers and thunderstorms by Thursday afternoon. Climatologically speaking, with these type of high pressure set-ups; and along with the latest MOS. The front appears to split the energy or at least weaken this system as it approaches our region.  We will need to monitor this day to day and more likely the day of the event to see if an outflow or squall line becomes serious enough to see watches issued.
