PM Update: Beautiful Stretch of Weather Ending
Conditions go downhill on Thursday
*High Wind Watch in effect Thurs. for higher terrain to the W and NW*
*Gale Warning for Tidal Potomac, Chesapeake Bay Thurs. into Fri.*
*Coastal Flood Watch in effect Thurs. along Bay, Eastern Shore.*
This pleasant weather had to end sometime, and the beginnings of that end are happening this afternoon. As temperatures generally reach the low 70s, high clouds are beginning to stream in across the area while low pressure organizes off the Southeast coast. Get out and enjoy this evening, the next few are looking unsettled.
Tonight: High clouds of this evening will thicken and lower overnight as winds begin to increase out of the northeast. Lows should be a little warmer than last night with clouds and winds on the increase, mid 50s in the north and west suburbs to around 60 in the city or southeast should do it.
Tomorrow: During much of the morning it will be mostly cloudy, increasingly windy, and still dry. By midday, rain chances will go up, and most if not all the area will see rainfall by afternoon. Winds sustained around 15-25 mph will be accompanied by occasional gusts of 40 mph or higher during the day and into the evening; even stronger winds are possible in the mountains and near the shoreline. Highs should top out in the quite cool low-to-mid 60s across the area.
Many locations will see 1"+ of rain, with some places approaching 2"+ along and east of I-95, through tomorrow night as showers continue into Friday.
