A large area of high pressure anchored off the mid-Atlantic coast will continue to pump warm air northward over most of the eastern United States this weekend. This will allow delightful summerlike weather to continue.

Temperatures across many areas will be more typical of July than late April, with widespread 80+ degrees being found both Saturday and Sunday. After a tough winter with a devastating ice storm and numerous snow events, residents of this area will be delighted to experience these above-average temperatures.
