A few light showers or periods of drizzle are possible on Wednesday as a maritime flow moves in off of the cooler Atlantic ocean. Skies will be mainly overcast with highs only reaching the upper 50s north of DC with lower to mid 60s across our southern suburbs.
Today will be perfect with sunshine, mid 60s for highs and a breeze from the northwest. Thursday will be a cooler with highs likely holding in the 50s as clouds increase ahead of our next storm system that will impact our area Thursday night through Friday with soaking rainfall.
After a beautiful weekend, the next storm system is forecast to become yet another Nor’easter on Tuesday bringing another chance of beneficial drought relief.
