The first tropical storm of the season, Alberto, has formed off the coast of South Carolina. Winds are now clocked at about 45 miles per hour.

Closer to home, an area of high pressure will bring mainly clear skies overnight and  temperatures in the 50s to lower 60s. Clouds will begin to increase Sunday as an area of low pressure (Tropical Storm Alberto) moves just off the North Carolina and South Carolina coast. Showers may develop by late afternoon, especially across southern Maryland and the Delmarva. Highs will approach the lower 80s where the sun hangs around longer, cooler temperatures where clouds thicken.

Monday and Tuesday will bring a period of unsettled weather to the mid-Atlantic with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s.
