Southern system to bring soaking rain Sunday morning
Wet weather may increase travel issues across the east coast Sunday
- Sunday morning rain likely, isolated rumbles of thunder possible
- Dry start to new workweek
- Another system likely by Wednesday
Expect increasing clouds for the rest of Saturday. Rain develops from the southwest to the northeast through early Sunday morning.
Widespread rain is likely by daybreak Sunday. Isolated storms are certainly possible, especially across the southside. Some lingering showers are possible into early afternoon, but most will see drier conditions building in after lunchtime from west to east.
Up to 1″ of rainfall is likely in most hometowns. Locally higher totals are possible, especially within thunderstorms that may develop.
Breezy conditions are likely on Sunday. While most hometowns see wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph, gusts up to 45 mph are possible along the higher ridgetops.
DRY, WARM START TO THE WEEK
Winds will once again be strong after this system. We’ll start off a new workweek on the breezy side, but we should be dry! Highs next week will read slightly warmer than normal for this time of the year.
Another area of low pressure and a cold front will bring rain to the region by Wednesday. While the specifics will be ironed out in the coming days, it does look like a widespread soaker. Behind the front, a large temperature drop will occur which may bring some snow showers to the mountain locations late Wednesday night into early Thursday.
