An elongated area of low pressure will continue to slowly move across the mid-Atlantic states today. It will remain along the coast for a couple of days as high pressure will be residing off the New England coast. You can see the results of that atmospheric combination out your window this morning. The heavy overcast and occasional drizzle will continue through Wednesday. This morning, steady rain has been slowly pushing south and east across Washington. And that's where the steadiest rain will remain.

LOCAL MODEL PREDICTED RAINFALL

Skies are expected to brighten a bit late Wednesday as the pattern shifts away from the area. This will leave an opening for high pressure to build into the region. This will result in partly sunny skies on Thursday and mostly sunny skies on Friday. High temperatures are forecast to remain in the 60s through Friday. Slightly warmer temperatures with partly cloudy skies may prevail this upcoming weekend.
