Some cloudiness is spreading into the area from the south. This is due to the development of an area of low pressure off the Carolina Coast. This system is expected to consolidate and then rapidly deepen into a nor’easter as it moves up the East Coast tomorrow. It still appears it will be far enough off shore to only brush areas west of the Chesapeake Bay. On the Shore and especially along the coastline, it will be a much more imposing storm. Very strong winds, beach erosion, high waves and surf and tidal flooding will again become a threat to areas hardest hit by Sandy. For us though, we are forecasting a cloudy, breezy and cold day tomorrow with a 60% chance of showers developing during the day. Enough cold air could be pulled into the system to give parts of the metro area a chance to see a light rain/snow mix or even some light snow. Eventually, snow may fall on the Eastern Shore as colder air gets pulled into the storm. By Thursday, our weather will improve with clearing skies. And right now, our forecast for the weekend is terrific. We are calling for lots of sunshine and a steady warming trend.
