Sunny skies will remain across the region with highs around the seasonal averages through the weekend.

Tonight: Clear & Cool

Lows: Upper 40s to Mid 50s | Wind: NE 4-8 m.p.h.

Friday: Mostly Sunny & Pleasant

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

Saturday: Mostly Sunny & Warm

Highs: Around 80 | Wind: NE 5-10 m.p.h.

High pressure is large and in charge. The problem is it will only hang around through Saturday. The closer we get to Sunday, the more it is looking like low pressure will develop and move near the Delmarva Peninsula, bringing showers to parts of the Mid-Atlantic Sunday afternoon and evening. Until then, beautiful weather will be widespread with sunny skies tomorrow and Saturday. Highs will reach the upper 70s tomorrow and near 80 degrees on Saturday.

There will be some sunshine for a while on Sunday before cloudiness increases across the area. And as stated above...scattered showers cannot be ruled out. Right now we are carrying a 20% chance of showers on Sunday. By this time tomorrow, we will have a better idea of whether there will be a slight chance, moderate chance or likelihood of rain on Sunday. Computers models that had been keeping the region warm and sunny on Sunday have been taking turns painting a more pessimistic outlook for Sunday. There is still a chance this new area of low pressure will stay offshore long enough to give us that sunny and warm weekend. Stay tuned.
