A slow moving cold front will drift to the east overnight before stalling across the mid-Atlantic. Showers will give way to areas of moderate to heavy rain after midnight and flooding may become an issue in flood prone areas. Temperatures will likely hold in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Monday will start wet as periods of rain slowly diminish. A few showers my linger into the afternoon hours as temperatures fall. Highs will likely occur during the early morning hours. Skies will partially clear Monday night as colder air funnels in from the north and west. Flurries are possible Christmas Eve in the mountains, but should not amount to much. Look for a reinforcing shot of colder air Christmas Day as highs struggle to rebound out of the 30s.
