Forecast: Dry but for Saturday's Shower Spoiler

By Camden Walker

WeatherCamAfter a chilly start this morning in the 30s, sunshine will catapult us well into the 50s. Saturday is less superb with clouds, showers, and temperatures in the 40s. Sunday saves the day with sunshine once again--albeit chilly temperatures in the lower 50s.

TODAY

Clear, slowly calming, near 60. A bit nippy and breezy to start, but sunny skies allow temperatures to head into the 50s and maybe 60 degrees during the afternoon. Winds will slowly die down towards evening. I think you'll find it a pretty keen day, overall.

Into the overnight hours, skies cloud over by midnight and spotty showers (30% chance) may dampen the area before dawn. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s to about 40 degrees.

TOMORROW

Cloudy, showers. Upper 40s. A weak area of storminess will slide through the region. With cloudy skies and showers (50%) our high temperature will be muted--only reaching the 47-50 mark. A breeze from the northeast direction will make it feel even cooler.

After dinnertime, the showers should dry up and overcast skies will begin to crack open. Low temperatures will dip tonight--into the lower 30s--perhaps some upper 20s in Winchester or Columbia if wind dies down completely. You haven't yet put away that winter coat, right?

Keep reading for the forecast through early next week. Or don't if you hate snow. kidding... ?

SUNDAY

Sunny, not windy! Lower 50s. Uh, wow. This is the first day this windy March where I can headline a lack of windy weather. Enjoy temperatures in the lower 50s with just a light breeze. Soak up some sunshine, but do watch that UV index "6" on Sunday = "high".

Overnight, most locations will dip into the mid and upper 30s. Clouds may stream into the area late.

A LOOK AHEAD

It's still unclear whether a coastal storm will impact the area Monday with snow or rain. More likely the storm will stay out to sea leaving us dry. Winds from the north along with cloud cover will keep it cold, with highs only in the 40s.

Clearing skies Tuesday seemingly mitigate a northerly wind, with temperatures rebounding as high as the middle 50s.
