Overnight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers, Patchy Fog

Lows: 55°-63° | Wind: W/NW 5-10

Monday: Scattered Showers, Isolated Thunderstorms

A stagnant weather pattern will dominate the mid-Atlantic forecast for the next several days bringing a mixed bag of weather conditions. While the forecast does not call for a total washout, keeping an umbrella handy until Thursday comes with high recommendation. Highs will generally be in the lower to middle 70s with overnight lows in the upper 50s to middle 60s. The best chance for severe weather will come Tuesday and Wednesday.  For a look at the extended outlook in your neighborhood, check out the new ABC7 Interactive  Extended Outlook application by clicking here.
