Wrath of Sally to Pass Through Tidewater of Virginia and Carolinas
Afternoon showers will develop across the DC Metropolitan Area on Thursday, eventually transitioning into a steady light rain during the overnight and continuing through predawn Friday. The showers will come to an end on Friday morning as a cold front slides southward through the Washington Area. The threat of severe thunderstorms will remain well south of our area across the eastern Carolinas and Tidewater of Virginia.
Feeling Like October
Just how low will the mercury go this weekend into early next week?
Lows will range from the upper 40s to near 50 in D.C. with the colder northern and western suburbs falling into the lower to middle 40s Sunday, Monday and Tuesday morning.
High temperatures during the upcoming weekend through Tuesday will struggle to rise out of the middle to upper 60s, making for gorgeous October-like weather around here.
Watching Hurricane Teddy
The same area of high pressure over northern New England responsible for the cooler weather across our region may help to steer Hurricane Teddy toward the Canadian Maritime after making a potential landfall in Bermuda. Some of the forecast models even track Hurricane Teddy towards Down East Maine during the middle portion of next week.
The image below, (courtesy Pivotal Weather) shows the dark blue colors in the northern Atlantic ocean approaching Nova Scotia next Wednesday as high pressure (red colors) remains locked in place over the eastern seaboard. Time will tell if Hurricane Teddy ends up getting blocked underneath this area of high pressure which could potentially pose a threat to coastal northern New England and or the Canadian Maritime.
