Sunny skies linger with a mid-week warm up
Wet weather returns by the end of the week
Winds will slowly subside late tonight as high pressure builds from the west. Temperatures will drop to the low 30s in most areas with dry conditions lingering again for Wednesday.
By the middle of the week, models are trending warmer with temperatures climbing to the upper 50s in the mountains and evenin mid-60s by Wednesday. We may indeed be getting a break in the relentless stretch of weekly wintry weather. Enjoy it because models are showing changes for the end of the week.
The pattern turns more unsettled as we enter the weekend. A stalled front will be draped over the Mid Atlantic. At the same time, several areas of low pressure will move along the front over the weekend, the first arriving late Friday. By Friday night, mainly rain will overspread the region with the slight chance of a mountain mix.
MORE RAIN THIS WEEKEND
Another disturbance will bring additional rain to the area Saturday afternoon and evening before exiting. The third wave of rain will enter Sunday afternoon with the actual cold front. We’ll begin to dry out early next week.
Total 3-day rainfall totals will likely be in the .50″ to 1″ range.
