Coastal low to bring rain this weekend
How much rain will still be determined by the track
THURSDAY: Partly sunny for the day with high thin clouds and warm. Highs in the mid to upper 70s. Partly cloudy for the evening and mild with temperatures into the 70s. Increasing clouds and pleasantly cool overnight with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Patchy fog overnight for a few spots.
FRIDAY: Patchy fog to start. A refreshing start to the day with temperatures in the 50s. High thin clouds early with filtered sunshine. Then high overcast for the day ahead of our next system. Comfortable with highs into the upper 60s to low 70s. Clouds thicken up for the afternoon. Turning breezy for the day. Cloudy during the evening and staying dry. Pleasant but cool, windy in the evening and into the 60s.
Cloudy into the overnight hours with some showers moving in from east to west after midnight. Lows into the low to mid 50s and still breezy.
Watching a coastal low for the weekend. Whether this officially becomes a tropical storm or not does not really matter. For us it depends on the track. How much rain is still to be determined by where the low will track. Further east would mean less rain. Further west would mean more rain. We will still have rain and gusty winds either rain. Highest rainfall will be east of 81 and the most rainfall east of the Blue Ridge.
SATURDAY: A cool start with temperatures in the 50s and cloudy. Scattered showers and windy for the day. There will be pockets of heavy rain at times especially in the afternoon and evening. This is still dependant on the track. A shift more east means less rain but we are still looking at several batches of showers for the day and it will be cloudy, cool and windy. Temperatures remain in the 50s. Highs likely in the mid to upper 50s and fluctuating with rain. Winds steady at 10-20mph and gusts at times 25-35mph. Rainfall potential right now is less than 0.50″ west of I-81. More than 0.50″ east of 81. Again this is variable depending on the track.
Because the center of the low is going to be to our east, the highest rainfall amounts and the strongest wind gusts will be east of 81. Highest rainfall and highest gusts along the Blue ridge. This is where more than 1″ of rain is likely.
Scattered showers and gusty winds continue into the evening with temperatures remaining into the 50s. Showers start to ease up overnight. Lows in the low 50s.
SUNDAY: Cloudy, drizzle and a few lingering showers early. Still breezy early. Cool and in the 50s. Mostly cloudy and cool. Temperatures will take a while to rise. Mild with highs in the upper 60s. Likely some late day clearing. Overnight lows in the upper 40s to low 50s.
MONDAY: Mainly clear to start and pleasant with temperatures in the 50s. Mainly sunny and warm with highs in the mid to upper 70s. A comfortable and warm evening with temperatures in the 70s. Overnight lows in the low to mid 50s.
TUESDAY: A refreshing morning with temperatures rising into the 60s and plenty of sunshine. Partly cloudy and warm with highs in the low to mid 70s. A warm evening with temperatures in the 70s to start. Overnight lows in the low to mid 50s.
WEDNESDAY: A pleasant start with temperatures rising into the 60s and partly cloudy. Partly sunny for the day and mild with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. A mild and comfortable evening with temperatures in the 60s. Lows near 50.
