Drying Trend to Stall Near East Coast

July 10, 2013; 10:13 AM

Wednesday 12:15 p.m.

During the next couple of days, the driest air mass in weeks will spread across the Great Lakes and into the Appalachians. However, its advance is likely to slow then stall near the East Coast. This video shows why this should happen.

The map shows how wet and dry areas may be arranged on Saturday afternoon. It doesn't show excessive rainfall but suggests the driest weather will stay west of the Appalachians.
