WEATHER BLOG: Gray Saturday
With the trough over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley today, we can expect a moist flow, coupled with pockets of energy, to bring scattered shower and thunderstorm activity to the region. A more solid rain shield will also be moving through the flow, located over Delmarva this morning, and moving along the east coast following a piece of vorticity this afternoon. For most of the I-95 corridor this will be a morning rain event, however up towards Boston, rain will last through the afternoon. With all the cloud cover in play temperatures will be held a good bit below normal. The upper trough will slowly slide east on Sunday, now with the trough axis centered over West Virginia. Upper level energy will continue to stream overhead, however the best of the energy will be off to the east and it looks like the second half of the weekend will be drier, if only by a little.
