Clouds return along with shower threat

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

OVERVIEW:  Cold front stalls to our south. Several low pressure systems track along it bringing the threat for showers.  Friday a more significant system with associated cold front brings rain but exits in time to leave us with a nice weekend as high pressure builds back in.  Next system comes in from the southwest bringing rain late in the day Monday followed by a deepening trough Tuesday.  It will situate itself over the east coast through Thursday keep temps a bit cooler.

THIS EVENING:   A beautiful evening as a weakening front slides east, clearing the clouds.  Temps will be warming a few degrees into the 60s as the sun breaks out.  We will cool to the low 50s by 10pm.

OVERNIGHT:  Clouds will return as a little disturbance rides in. We may also see a few showers late morning. Lows will be mild in the low 40s.

AM Hour by Hour

TOMORROW:  A few showers early in the day, then the clouds break up some allowing for more sunshine.  Closer to the front further along the MD/PA line, clouds will stay put.  Highs, where we see more sunshine, will warm to the low 60s but they will be kept in the 50s where clouds are stubborn.   Tomorrows Forecast


WET COUPLE OF DAYS: Showers return late Wednesday into Thursday as a wave develops along the stalled boundary. Then another wave will trigger more rain showers in the afternoon and evening Thursday, but a more potent low pressure system, with a trailing cold front, keeps wet weather around through Friday.  In the next 3 days we could see a half inch to an inch of rainfall.  We’ll be keeping an eye on the river levels as there could be some minor flooding after the recent record breaking rainfall we had.  The ground is still wet and with the additional rain it won’t take much for areas prone to flooding to see minor flooding.

Rainfall Totals

WEEKEND OUT LOOK:  High pressure builds in for the weekend bringing sunshine and very nice conditions.  Temperatures will be in the low 60’s Saturday but a bit cooler for Sunday in the upper 50’s.

STARTING WET NEXT WEEK: Showers return Monday along with cooler temperatures for the start of the week.
