PM Update: Out with the warm, in with the showers

By Ian Livingston

Rain chances arrive later tomorrow, last into weekend

Our final milder-than-normal afternoon of this very pleasant stretch of autumn weather is coming to a close. Some extra high clouds through much of the day helped keep temperatures in check just a bit, as most spots reach highs near 70 into the mid-70s. Good news is that while clouds will generally increase heading through tonight leading to a cloudy tomorrow, rain is still a ways off. All in all it's another pleasant evening for outdoor activities.

Through Tonight: Following some possible short-term clearing into evening, we'll see clouds thicken and lower overnight. Evening readings in the mid-to-upper 60s drop to lows ranging from near 50 into the mid-50s. Winds should begin shifting to the northeast and east by morning.

Tomorrow (Friday): Low pressure headed for the Great Lakes will send a cold front and its associated moisture our direction, but the precipitation won't be in much of a hurry to get here, so we should stay dry through the morning. Shower chances start to increase by mid-to-late afternoon with scattered activity possible by evening. With all the clouds and a cooler flow off the ocean, highs won't rise much higher than the low-to-mid 60s.

Jim in NOVA here -

So it looks like things are looking worse and worse for my move on Saturday. Is this looking more like a washout or still on and off showers? Is there anything I can do timing wise to avoid the worst of the rain, or is it an all day event?

I'm hoping to avoid having to put this off until Sunday if at all possible!

Thanks :).
