THIS EVENING: Increasing Clouds, Temperatures Falling To 45.
TONIGHT: Cloudy. Lo 40. Winds: Light
WEDNESDAY: Rain, 0.50-0.75″. Hi 48. Winds: E 5 mph
Clouds will be on the increase tonight as we watch the approach of low pressure from the Tennessee Valley. With clouds overhead, temperatures will only fall to about 40 degrees overnight in most spots, which is 5-10 degrees above the normal low.
Low pressure will slide through the mid-Atlantic Wednesday, keeping us on the northern fringes of the system. Rain will move in by mid-morning and stick around through most of the afternoon. Steady, but generally light rainfall amounts can be expected with a quarter to a half inch of rain being common, slightly less than earlier projections. All of the rain should exit by 5pm, leaving us just mostly cloudy into Wednesday night.
We get another break from the wet conditions on Thursday before another system arrives for the weekend. At this time, model guidance is showing some showers for Friday with most of the rain occurring Saturday. We will continue to pin down the rain timing and give you more details throughout the week. The timing of the storm continues to slow down which mean rain chances will linger into at least early Sunday. By then, temperatures will at least climb back into the 60s. Many of us will be itching to get outside and get the kids outside for a bit so we’ll keep you posted!
