A coastal storm is responsible for the chilly, rainy, and breezy conditions we'll have the next several days. When you're ready to complain, try to remember the stretch of dry weather we had through September and the hot temperatures last week and this past weekend. The rain is much needed, though, with still over two inches below average since September 1st. Rainfall estimates, from our local computer simulation, are around two inches through Thursday night -- although, I think southern Maryland will pick up more than this guidance suggests.
Bands of rain will move in from southeast to northwest through the day with winds picking up, as well. Periods of moderate to heavy rain will move in overnight and will continue through much of the day tomorrow. Highs tomorrow will struggle to reach the 60 degree mark. Light showers and drizzle may linger into the weekend, as this low continues to spin off the coast.
