FORECAST IN DETAIL
For the second time in three days, we'll see our trip home this late afternoon and evening complicated by rain. Tomorrow brings improving conditions with some sun and warmer temperatures, before a cold snap commences on Friday and really kicks in for the weekend. What's the latest on that snow rumor for Saturday?...
Today (Wednesday): We're dry through the morning commute as any early-morning sun quickly gives way to overcast skies with highs headed for the low 50s. As a juicy storm system approaches from the southwest, light rain is likely to spread across the area from southwest to northeast during the late morning through early afternoon. Rain could be moderate at times in the mid-to-late afternoon. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Rain continues through the evening, at times moderate to heavy with the chance of an isolated thunderstorm or two. Evening temperatures stay fairly steady, mainly in the low 50s, with winds from the southeast at 15-20 mph. Rain should diminish after 1 a.m. or so, and temperatures may actually rise some overnight -- into the mid-50s, possibly upper 50s -- as winds come from more of a due south direction. Confidence: Medium
Storm totals could approach or exceed 1 inch.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Any lingering early-morning showers and overcast should dissipate in favor of a partly sunny and breezy day with pleasant highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy and quite cool with lows in the 30s. Confidence: Medium-High
We're partly to mostly cloudy and cooler Friday with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. Continued partly to mostly cloudy Friday night with lows in the 30s. Confidence: Medium-High
Saturday hinges on a storm expected to form off the Southeast U.S. coast and then... track northward close enough to the coast to give us a good chance of rain and/or snow Saturday into Saturday night with daytime highs only in the 30s? ... or track far enough off the coast to leave us with more limited precipitation chances and highs near 40 or into the low 40s? We're leaning somewhat toward the latter, but are watching the models closely in case they trend toward the former. Confidence: Low
Any storminess should clear out in time for a partly to mostly sunny but chilly Sunday with highs in the 40s. Confidence: Medium
