After a beautiful end to the work week, big changes are headed in to town for the weekend.

Overnight: Partly Cloudy & Mild

Lows: 50s to Near 60 | Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.

Saturday: Morning Sun, PM T-Storms

Highs: Upper 70s | Wind: SSW 5-10 m.p.h.

Sunday: Rain Likely, Heavy at Times

Highs: Upper 50s | Rain: 1-2 inches

If you plan or need to do some stuff outside and need dry weather…do it before 3 pm tomorrow afternoon…..before noon west of the Blue Ridge. The reason for this advice is simple. It’s going to rain. Partly cloudy skies will continue in many locations through this evening, overnight and into the afternoon hours tomorrow. But then, as a cold front approaches, showers and thunderstorms will become likely and may become widespread.

By Sunday, an area of low pressure will develop along the East Coast. As this system moves northward, our winds will turn to the north and rain will move up from the south. The rain could be steady and possibly heavy at times as it continues its northward track. The heaviest rain will likely be east of the I-95 corridor, especially in Southern Maryland, the Northern Neck and the Delmarva. Rain totals could reach 1”-2” across parts of our area and even more… closer to the ocean. Beneficial rain. As the system departs on Monday, it will be windy and chilly with scattered showers.
