Forecast details:

An unsettled period of weather will remain with us most of this week. Clouds and a daily chance of at least some shower activity will be prevalent, but some limited peeks of sunshine are likely from time to time.

Pockets of drizzle or a light rain shower are possible overnight. Areas of fog will develop tonight with lows staying in the mid to upper 40s. The chance of any showers overnight is 20% or less.

Thursday will have dry stretches throughout, however the presence of an upper level low pressure in the mid-Atlantic region will keep a slight chance of a shower or few in our forecast. Highs will be around 60; especially with any breaks of sun.

Scattered showers are possible Friday as the upper level low continues to spin through the area. The chance of rain is 40%. Highs will be around 60 again.

Mothers Day weekend carries a lot of uncertainty with it. For now I’m keeping a chance of showers in the forecast both days. I do not think it will rain all weekend long, but there looks to be at least some showers each day. I’ll cap the chance of rain at 30% Saturday, but increase that to 60% overnight Saturday and early Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, the chance of rain falls to 30%. Mothers Day does not look like a complete washout. Highs Saturday will be around 68 and around 62 Mothers Day.

We should settle things down and dry things out starting Monday as high pressure slowly builds in. Clouds and sunshine are expected with highs around 60. Next Tuesday and Wednesday should approach 70, but once again, the chance of rain, and perhaps thunder, will enter the forecast.
