There will be some showers, or maybe a period of rain and drizzle, in parts of the area late Friday night and Saturday morning. The best chance will be in the southern and eastern parts of the viewing area.
Showers associated with the cold front will be crossing the area during the midday and early afternoon.
The best time for the shower looks to be Wednesday morning as the short wave moves through. High temperatures Wednesday will depend on how much sun can break through the clouds.
There is some patchy fog out there Friday morning, but satellite shows we should get out to a fairly sunny start with clouds building toward the afternoon.
We have a few residual showers and t-storms across the region right now, and we should be allowing for these the next couple of hours as a slow moving cold front is being held back by a weak wave of low pressure that has developed along it.
The leading edge of some much warmer and more humid air is slowly advancing through the mid-Atlantic. The combination of any breaks of sunshine along with increasing dew points and temps could fire up an isolated shower or t-storm by the afternoon and evening so we will be keeping a very close eye on that.
While all the news isn’t good, that doesn’t mean it is all bad, either.
We need to mention spotty sprinkles or showers again Thursday afternoon. Otherwise short-term looks pretty much OK.
There is a front passing through the state. It has drawn moisture up from the southern storm, and is bringing a few showers with it. So there will be spotty showers Wednesday into the first half of night before that front gets out of here. Even with the front and the clouds that it’s bringing, the mild air continues. We are going to top out in the low 50s, then close to 50 again Thursday and Friday. That’s still about 10 degrees above average.
The front came and went overnight with a little snow across the northern tier of the state, and some rain showers farther south.
After a day filled with sunshine and a high of 43 degrees, there is a little hiccup coming Saturday night before warmer air makes a run at the Mid-Atlantic.
While there could be some breaks in the clouds early, there should be some fog developing once again late Thursday night. The ideas are still intact that high pressure Friday and on Saturday should bring no less than partial sunshine and unseasonably warm afternoons.
