Enough is enough, but get ready for another couple days of clouds, showers and areas of fog. Brighter skies promised later in the week along with a major cooling trend.

Overnight: Mostly Cloudy, Patchy Drizzle, Patchy Fog

Lows: 60s | Wind: Northeast 2-5 mph

Monday: Mostly to Partly Cloudy, Passing Showers

Highs: 77°- 82° | Wind: Southeast 5-10 mph

Tuesday: Showers, Periods of Rain

Highs: near 80° | Wind: South 5-10 mph

Like the filling between two cookies, the mid-Atlantic remains sandwiched between an area of low pressure over the midwest and a Bermuda high off the coast. This means clouds overnight, pockets of drizzle and areas of fog.

Monday will be a mix of mostly clouds with a few glimmers of sunshine. Shower chances will be limited to around 30 percent. Tuesday will be warm and humid with showers and periods of heavier rain possible. A cold front arrives late Wednesday ushering in less humid air and a brief area of high pressure on Thursday.

A second cold front will bring a very noticeable shot of cooler air for the weekend. Highs by Saturday and Sunday are only expected to be in the 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 40 with the potential for frost in the mountains.
