system exiting the region. strengthening, low pressure, we have high pressure building back in. so, it is that pressure difference, which is causing the winds. so when you are stuck between those two systems, you get the stronger winds flow. atmosphere just wants to balance itself out. and that's what it is doing, just blowing the winds across the region, the winds, will die down later on tonight, so really just today. gusts, near 30 miles per hour through the morning into the afternoon, over a lot of locations, start decreasing into the evening hours, gusts less than 20. by around 8:00, 9:00. tomorrow much quieter conditions as far as the wind goes. high pressure starts to builds in across the mid-atlantic over the next 24 hours, that locks us in to the dry pattern. sunday we start off with some sun, clouds start thickening up later during the day, one weak disturbance tries to move through, maybe stray shower, or even flurry in the poconos, early monday morning. other than that, partly sunny skies, then our next larger system holds off until tuesday. it will bring milder air with some rain. specially on tuesday afternoon. good thing, we can use some more rain across the region. highs today near average.
