Discussion

After a dry and chilly day to end the work week, soaking rain will move into the region by this evening and continue through a good part of the day on Saturday. The rain will come down heavily at times; especially, in the overnight hours early on Saturday morning and the end result for total rainfall should be between 0.75 and 1.00 inch. Sunday will feature some sunshine, but it’ll be quite breezy and a shower cannot be ruled out. The new work week will start out quiet and mild, but colder air will push into the Mid-Atlantic region by mid-week.
