Nice Friday before much needed (but poorly timed!) rain

After a record-setting cold morning across the area, temperatures rose into the 50s and 60s today, with full sunshine helping to make up for the cool numbers.

Observed Lows

Expect a similar day on Friday with clouds increasing by Friday night. Then, here comes the rain – and there could be a lot of it on Saturday.

Futurecast With Fronts

A coastal low, currently over the Carolinas, will slowly move up the eastern seaboard, bringing with it ample moisture. The heaviest rain  is expected to arrive here during the PM hours.

\Futurecast Dma

Over an inch is likely, with locally higher amounts. Considering we are running about an inch and a quarter dry for May, this rain is much needed.

Rain Amounts Models

Sunday will be salvageable as rain exits stage left during the early morning hours and the sun returns, with highs in the 70s.

Have a great night!
