There will be plenty of sunshine on Saturday, but things will start changing for Sunday. Tropical moisture from Nestor will skirt our region on Sunday. Between now and then, clouds sourcing from the tropical storm will begin to increase Saturday night into Sunday morning as the center of low pressure hurries to the northeast at 17 mph.
Moisture wrapped around the north and eastern part of the storm may stretch as far north as our neck of the woods, giving us a chance for precipitation on Sunday. Scattered showers are in the forecast for Sunday. The highest chance of rain in our area will be areas along and south of I-66. The center of low pressure will venture well out into the Atlantic by Monday with clouds clearing out of the region.
A cold front will arrive on Tuesday, giving us a good chance for rain for most of the region. Hopefully, we see another soaker like we did the previous week. Currently, the models suggest a quarter to just over a half-inch, but if we are lucky, we may be able to squeeze out a good inch or close to it.
The rest of the week Wednesday onward to Friday looks dry for the most part. Seasonable temperatures all the way around, but we may have to watch for clouds as the Mummers make their way to town for the annual Alsatia Mummers Parade, the largest nighttime parade on the East Coast.
