Good Saturday! Tonight will be dry across the entire DVM area. Clouds will begin to work their way into our area ahead of a warm front that will approach late tonight into early Sunday. Lows for our Saturday will dip into the upper 40s and lower 50s. A weak distance from the west will begin to work its way into our area Sunday. For our Sunday, we will see on and off again rain throughout the day. This low pressure will drift to the north across the great lakes. However, the warm front associated with the low pressure will begin to stall out, which will give us steadier rain throughout the afternoon.
Some locations could hear a rumble of thunder or two. Most of the storm activities that we will see will happen Sunday afternoon across Western Maryland and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. The system will begin to move east through the area during the evening hours. The D.C. Metro area will see thunderstorm activities closer to the evening hours. This system could spark up a few severe thunderstorms will our main threat being gusty winds. Any threat of flooding will be localized and isolated. We start to see drier conditions heading to our Monday as the low moves out of our area. Mostly sunny skies are expected for our Monday with highs in the 70s and some areas evening getting into the 80s. But gusty westerly winds are expected. A weak high pressure will build in for our Tuesday. There is a chance that higher elevations could see a few light showers. A warm front will lift through the area Wednesday morning, and the cold front will later follow Wednesday afternoon. As this cold front approaches, southern Maryland and Fredericksburg areas have the best chance to see some severe weather. The cold front will shift offshore Wednesday night, and high pressure will begin to build in from the north. Another low pressure will make its way through our area Saturday that could bring us some showers for Mother’s Day.
