There isn't much weather news to report in Maryland and the mid-Atlantic this week other than to say ideal, calm weather is expected to last throughFather's Dayand the Star-Spangled Sailabration. No news is good news, right?

Not when you're a weather blogger, but who can complain with 80 degrees and partly cloudy skies?

For the peak of the Sailabration festivities on Saturday, mostly sunny skies and temperatures just shy of 80 are in the forecast, according to the National Weather Service. ForFather's Day, it's expected to a few degrees warmer and just as sunny.

There aren't yet any decent chances forecast for severe weather in the region, according to the weather service's Storm Prediction Center. And the tropics and western Atlantic Ocean remain quiet,according to the National Hurricane Center.

Windy conditions and a chance for some coastal flooding on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay still have the region under a small craft advisory, for points in the bay south of the Bay Bridge, through 6 a.m. Friday.

Forecasts have warmer temperatures and instability returning by the middle of next week. Enjoy this while it lasts.
