Changes will be occurring over the next couple of days and warm air won't last forever this October!

Tonight:
Partly Cloudy, Mild
Lows: Upper 50s to Mid 60s
Wind: S 2-5 m.p.h.
Friday:
Partly Sunny, Warm
Highs: 80s
Wind: SW 5 m.p.h.
Saturday:
Partly Cloudy, Warm
Highs: Mid to Upper 80s
Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.

High pressure will slowly move off the Delmarva Coast. Light southerly winds will slowly swing to the west over the next few days. Temperatures will remain well above average through Sunday and humidity levels will slowly but steadily rise, as well. Skies will be partly cloudy through Sunday.

During the day tomorrow, the leading edge of warmer and more humid air may produce a few isolated showers. But chances of measurable, more meaningful rain, will hold off until Monday. Because early Monday morning, a cold front will approach the area from the west. At the same time, the remnant circulation and moisture from what is now Tropical Storm Karen in the southern Gulf of Mexico, may be drawn northward along the cold front. The cold front, itself, will generate scattered showers. BUT IF THE MOISTURE FROM KAREN is drawn northward, as discussed above, rain COULD BE locally heavy later Monday and Monday night. We will keep you up to date as conditions slowly develop over the next few days.
