Overnight: Mostly Cloudy, Showers
Lows: 48°-55° | Wind: Northeast 10-20 mph
Sunday: Increasing Rain and Wind
Highs: near 60° | Wind: North 20-30 mph
Monday: Heavy Rain, Strong Winds
Highs: near 50° | Wind: North 35-45 mph, higher gusts
Mostly cloudy skies and showers are expected overnight as temperatures fall into the upper 40s to middle 50s.
On Sunday, Sandy will interact with a strong upper level wave moving in from the west. The system will intensify and is likely to make landfall somewhere along the Delmarva coast north to the New Jersey coast. It is likely that the storm will pass north of the D.C. area, however some uncertainty remains. A HIGH WIND WATCH has been issued from late Sunday night through Tuesday for the D.C. area along with a FLOOD WATCH.
The slow moving system will move away from the mid-Atlantic by Wednesday with clearing conditions toward the end of the week.
