Storms continue to be possible tonight, so either stay indoors or keep your umbrella close.

Tonight: Lingering Storms, Patchy Fog Late

Lows: 60s | Precipitation: 40%

Saturday: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Storms

Highs: Low 80s | Precipitation: 30%

Sunday: Partly Cloudy & Pleasant

Highs: Mid 70s | Wind: NE 5-10 m.p.h.

The warm and humid air mass over our area just needs a little push here and there to fire up isolated showers and thunderstorms. This has been happening at times this afternoon and will continue tonight. In fact, later tonight as a cold front approaches from the north, a late night area of showers and thunderstorms could develop. Overnight, all that activity will push south and dissipate.

Skies should be partly cloudy early tomorrow morning with areas of fog. During the day, drier air will slowly filter into the area. But moisture levels will still be high enough when combined with day time heating and the proximity of the frontal zone to the south, to fire up some isolated showers and thunderstorms…especially south of Washington. On Sunday, cooler air will be feeding into the region from New England. Skies will be partly to occasionally mostly cloudy and high temperatures will only reach the lower to middle 70s. Partly cloudy and pleasant weather is forecast for Monday.
