The heavy thunderstorms that were in the region have shifted out of the region but we’ll remain rather cloudy tonight with areas of fog and scattered showers. The best chance for having a shower will be near and south of route 22. A front will stay stalled to our south on Saturday. We’ll still have some showers and drizzle, especially the farther south you are. There could even be a downpour in places near the Maryland border. Near and north of I-80 there will likely be no rain and there could even be some breaks of sunshine.
Saturday will be cooler than Friday with most spots not getting out of the 60s. The remnant moisture from what once was Tropical Moisture Gordon will link up with this front and that is going to help spark heavy rainfall from parts of the Midwest into our area for the rest of the weekend. A steadier rainfall will develop on Sunday and will likely become heavy at times into Monday morning before tapering to showers later Monday. This rain is going to keep us quite cool on Sunday with highs in the 50s. We will also have areas of fog. Temperatures will likely not leave the 60s on Monday either. Flooding is going to be likely in places, especially since we are coming out of the wettest summer on record. We’ll have a much smaller chance for a shower on Tuesday. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s. Showers will still be possible on Tuesday with more clouds than sunshine. Highs will be in the 70s. We’ll turn warmer on Wednesday and Thursday with a mix of clouds and sunshine along with just the chance for a shower. Highs will be near to just above 80 each day. By Thursday there may be a breeze that develops as Hurricane Florence approaches the east coast. That is something that we will continue to monitor as we head through the upcoming weekend and early next week.
