FIRST WARNING FORECAST
April 24, 2017 08:36 PM
As low pressure moves northeast up the Eastern Seaboard it will cause skies to cloud up across the region overnight and by Tuesday it will spread periods of rain or showers our way. The combination of clouds, rain and a cool wind from off the Atlantic Tuesday's temperatures will only be in the 50s for highs, that's 15-20° cooler then they were on Monday.
The low will slowly move out to sea during Wednesday with the rain ending from west to east by early afternoon though skies will remain mostly cloudy. Afternoon temperatures will warm back into the 60s.
Thursday looks to be a rather nice day with S and SW winds and partly sunny skies allowing for above normal temperatures for all, expect afternoon highs well into the 70s!
Late Thursday night through Friday a weakening cold front will move slowly across the area kicking off a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. The best chance for any wet weather during this time period will be during Friday afternoon. Once again more 70s for highs are expected on Friday.
As for the weekend, right now a tricky forecast. Saturday could start off dry and mild but as another weather disturbance approaches clouds and showers are possible by afternoon or evening and the showery weather will probably last into Sunday, too. Timing this weather system is a bit uncertain at this time - it could be delayed making for a very nice day on Saturday or it could come in faster leading to wet weather at times for much of the weekend. Regardless, temperatures will stay mild, close to 70° both these days.
