We have a bit of unsettled weather before a long stretch of fall-like weather arrives in Delmarva.

A small high pressure system brought a brief period of nice weather to Delmarva on Tuesday, but by Tuesday afternoon, the high began to decline, and in its wake some scattered showers developed. Severe storms are not likely, but some damaging wind gusts cannot be ruled out in any storms that develop. They will move mainly from west to east this evening.

The thunderstorms Tuesday evening come before a cold front that will cross the mid-Atlantic and Delmarva on Wednesday. The front will bring with it the chance of a wider spread of rain and thunderstorm activity. Again, severe storms are unlikely, but damaging wind gusts and localized flooding cannot be ruled out.

On the heels of Wednesday’s unsettled weather, a broad band of high pressure will bring pleasant fall-like weather into the latter half of the week. Expect mostly sunny skies Thursday into next Monday, with temperatures ranging from the mid to upper 70s to seasonal lows in the 80s.

If you’re heading to the beaches, the current threat will be very high this weekend thanks to the swells from Hurricane Lee, which is expected to remain east of Delmarva.

Speaking of the tropics…

Hurricane Lee has re-established itself as a major hurricane and has now turned to the north. It is expected to remain on its mainly northern path over the next few days.

Lee will likely pass to the west of Bermuda, but some tropical storm conditions are likely; Tropical storm watches are ready for the island.

Lee could pose a big problem for Downeast Maine and Nova Scotia this weekend, as it could strike as a hurricane, the second time in as many years (Fiona hit Nova Scotia last year).

No direct impacts to Delmarva are expected, other than dangerous rip currents and high waves onshore.

Elsewhere in the tropics, Tropical Storm Margot is considered a hurricane, but is not expected to pose a threat to land.

In the deep tropics, a tropical wave near the Cape Verde Islands has a high 80% chance of becoming an organized tropical system within the next seven days. It is not a direct threat to Earth at this time. If she is named, her name will be “Nigel”.

The long-range 8-14 day forecast calls for above normal average temperatures and near normal precipitation for September 19 through September 25.
