The good news is that we finally have a break in the rain. Over the past three days, over one inch of rain had fallen along with a full day of dreary fog. Today, strong winds help clear us out but only cool us down a little. There will be clouds from an upper level disturbance, and maybe a stray sprinkle to the north. Flurries have been confined to the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia, with more steady snow bands in Pennsylvania and New York. The winds will be gusting to 30 mph or higher from the northwest holding temperatures nearly steady in the upper 40s. This weekend will remain dry and mild as the winds ease and shift direction. Then next week we have a close coastal storm indicative of the El Nino pattern.
Strong winds will average 15 to 25 mph, with gusts over 30 mph, especially by the bay. Hold on the steering when while driving over bridges.
Coastal Storm Next Week?
