The week ahead, Jeanne's remnants, the Redskins and Hurricane Kerry

Jason Samenow @ 12:04 AM

The forecast for the early part of the week will be dominated by the effects of the remnants of Hurricane Jeanne (for more on Jeanne's impact on Florida, see the links in my post from yesterday and this article from the Washington Post).

Jeanne's remnants will move northward today over south and central Georgia and into western South Carolina. Tomorrow, she should shift more to the east, across central North Carolina, moving offshore in southeast Va. Given that track, the heaviest rain from Jeanne should fall from Richmond to Salisbury and points south and east.

Expect rain showers to move in this evening and continue on and off through mid to late afternoon tomorrow. Total rainfall in our area should be around an inch or a bit less. No big deal.

Canadian high pressure will build in for Wednesday, bringing delightful weather for the rest of the work week. Expect highs in the low to mid 70s and low humidity. Overnight lows will be chilly with 50s in town and 40s in the cooler suburbs.

Headed to FedEx field tonight for the Skins/Cowboys Monday night showdown? Expect increasing clouds with a 50% chance of showers (associated with the remnants of Jeanne). Temperatures should be relatively comfortable -- near 70 degrees. If you're going, rain gear would be a good idea. It will be a bit breezy -- with easterly winds at 10-20 mph. Score prediction: Cowboys 17, Redskins 13

Season prediction record (for pro/college games): 8-2

Breaking News: Hurricane Kerry Spinning in the Atlantic
Kerry has been twisting and turning in the Atlantic ever since, going one way then the other, confusing forecasters. Hurricane watchers say they have never seen a hurricane go through so many directions and still don't know where it will head next. Some forecasters predict Hurricane Kerry will just hit a few northeast states and do minimal damage, but forecasters are also warning Florida residents, still weary from the 2000 hurricane season, to be on the look out for severe damage on par with Hurricane Algor.
