nice day before the deluge

Today temps will be 50 to 60 degrees. Some cloudiness will start to infiltrate SW areas. Tonight we will see rain start to occur by daybreak. Temps COULD be cold enough in some of the valleys to see a bit of mixed precip, but think that this will be brief at best. Rain will truly breakout tomorrow area wide and become steady and heavier later in the day. Rain will be heavy at times tomorrow night with temps steady or even climbing a bit. Thursday we will see heavy rain continue with embedded thunderstorms. Some storms could become severe, especially SE VA and Eastern NC. Temps will drop significantly as the front come through later in the day and some snow should mix in Western area over the mountains and possibly spreading eastward, especially in the northwest areas of VA and Western MD, and PA.

Temps will turn a bit cooler Friday and windy. We will see seasonal temps and now it looks like sunny skies for the weekend.

Please stay alert to flooding conditions. Do not attempt to drive through any water!

All for now!

Mid- day update possible!
