Good Thursday! Just like last night, cloudy skies with periods of drizzle and developing fog are in the forecast. Overnight lows will be mild and in the 60s. A storm to our west will move north and help bring increasing chances for rain Friday into Saturday mainly west of the Blue Ridge Mountains; otherwise many folks will end the week under variably cloudy skies. Afternoon temps will rise up into the mid to upper 70s with overnight lows in the 60s. Over the weekend, Saturday looks to be the drier of the two days initially; however, the general trends have pushed any sort of rain shower activity to the late Saturday and into Sunday with areas around and south of DC experiencing the heaviest rain amounts. Sunday, a developing storm system along the North Carolina coast could push rain our way, especially east of I-95. By Sunday night it appears that the wet weather will give way to drier weather returning. Columbus Day and into the middle of next week the forecast is for the area to experience partly cloudy skies and warmer temperatures. Speaking of temperatures, each day looks to peak in the 70s and bottom out in the 50s and lower 60s.
