EVENING: Clear and pleasant. Temps in the 60s.
TONIGHT: Clear skies and cool. Low 43.
TUESDAY: Sunny and pleasant. High 70.
Very dry air is in place for this evening producing crystal clear skies and seasonable highs in the 60s and low 70s. A clear and calm night will lead to temperatures dropping into the low 40s with some areas dipping into the upper 30s!
High pressure will be in control for Tuesday and Wednesday as we continue our stretch of sunny and dry conditions. As we move deeper into the week, a broad upper level low (the same system that brought a damp stretch last weekend) will drift back onto the east coast. Thursday will see more clouds and Friday could start off with some drizzle as more moisture returns to the Mid-Atlantic states.
Saturday appears to be the wettest day of the weekend, however, it will be in the form of morning drizzle and occasional light showers. A milder Sunday could also lead to a late day shower or storm. Overall, I still believe there will be some changes in the forecast for the weekend as this low gradually weakens. Check back throughout the week to see the latest on the upcoming weekend.
