StormWatch7 Meteorologist Brian van de Graaff's Friday Outlook

**Programing Note** after 13 years on morning television on ABC7 and Newschannel 8 I am shifting to a later schedule beginning next Monday. This means my no more daily morning updates from me...but don't fret my colleague Eileen Whelan will have you covered.  I’ll try and update my social media when the kids wrangle me up but for a complete forecast tune into NewsChannel 8 from 12:30pm until 7pm weekdays…on air and streaming online at

Some sunshine and milder temperatures again today but I can't rule out some passing showers or a storm later today.  Nothing widespread or severe, but be aware.  Weekend is shaping up rather nicely - especially Saturday! 

Partly Sunny, Warm, Passing PM Shower/Storm
High: 73°-78°
Wind: S 5-10 mph
Early Shower, Clearing
Low: 50s
Wind: West 3-6 mph
Mostly Sunny, Spectacular & Warm
High: Near 80°
Wind: NW 10 mph
Partly Cloudy, Not as Warm, PM Showers Possible
High: Near 70°
Wind: SE 5-10 mph

Early morning showers continue to push east across the bay this morning and should be confined to the Eastern Shore through the bulk of the rush. Sun will break into the midday and dependent on how much we get, temperatures will climb into the mid and possibly upper 70s. An approaching front brings the risk for a few showers and or a storm later today but nothing too wide-spread. If you are heading to the Nats game tonight just be prepared for a brief shower or two.


Saturday is still looking great! We continue to forecast partly to mostly sunny skies with highs reaching the near 80 degrees. On Sunday, most areas should experience partly sunny skies during the morning, followed by increasing cloudiness and a chance rain developing by late afternoon or possibly early evening. So even Sunday will provide a good stretch of pleasant outdoor weather before the rain arrives. Sunday’s high temperature should reach 70 degrees. The rain will continue on Monday. Looking ahead to Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, our updated, extended outlook calls for partly to mostly sunny skies with daily high temperatures around 70 degrees to the lower 70s. Have a great weekend.
