Today's Forecast

Umbrella ready weather coming

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — SPRINKLES, DRIZZLE, AND LIGHT SHOWER ACTIVITY LOOK TO CROSS THE MOUNTAINS AND IMPACT AREAS WEST OF I-81 OVERNIGHT AS TEMPERATURES STAY IN THE 40S. TUESDAY, A STORM WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE STALLED COLD FRONT TO OUR NORTHWEST, BRINGING ABOUT RAIN CHANCES IN THE MORNING AND PEAKING IN THE AFTERNOON. THE PATH OF THE STORM SYSTEM WOULD PLACE THE HIGHEST RAIN CHANCES IN THE MOUNTAINS, WITH LESSER AMOUNT (AROUND A QUARTER OF AN INCH OR LESS) THE FURTHER EAST YOU DRIVE. THE FRONT WILL PUSH SOUTH OF THE AREA LATER TUESDAY NIGHT, ENDING THE RAIN CHANCES. MILD WEATHER WILL PERSIST THROUGH THIS TIME, WITH DAYTIME TEMPS AROUND 60 AND LOWS IN THE 40S. WITH THE COLD FRONT JUST SOUTH OF THE AREA ON WEDNESDAY, THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF A FEW LINGERING SHOWERS IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA, BUT THEY ARE FORECAST TO MOVE AWAY THROUGHOUT THE DAY AS THE FRONT SAGS EVEN FURTHER SOUTH. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BUILD IN BEHIND THE FRONT ON WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

LATE IN THE WEEK, ANOTHER STORM WILL DEVELOP IN THE DEEP SOUTH ON THURSDAY AND MOVE CLOSER TO OUR AREA BY FRIDAY AND THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEKEND. DURING THIS PERIOD, THE STORM WILL INTENSIFY OFF OUR COAST AS IT TRACKS NORTHEAST FRIDAY NIGHT. SOME SNOW SHOWERS MAY LINGER INTO SATURDAY MORNING, BUT AS THE SYSTEM MOVES AWAY THEY SHOULD GRADUALLY END. BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN FRIDAY AS THE STORM INTENSIFIES OFFSHORE AND ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO THROUGH SATURDAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BUILD OVER OUR REGION LATE IN THE WEEKEND AND INTO THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK.
