Storm Spinning Southward
Showery Saturday, Sunday Sun?

Jason Samenow @ 7:46 AM

The upper level weather system responsible for the current spat of miserable weather will gradually rotate southward today. Occasional rain showers will pass through the region but will be out of the picture by tomorrow...


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighIntermittent showers, cool. While we won't have a steady soaking like yesterday, rain showers will pulse through the area (from east to west) from time to time. When it's not raining, it will remain cloudy and cool. High temperatures today will be in the mid to upper 50s, and it will remain breezy with easterly winds of 15 to 20 mph. Overnight, any lingering rain shower activity should diminish, with mostly cloudy skies and lows near 50.

Current surface weather map

Pictured: Surface map shows an area of low pressure off the North Carolina coast. The more important feature, though, is the upper level low centered inland near the North Carolina/Virginia border. This low (not shown), cutoff from the jet stream, is sort of stuck in place -- keeping unsettled weather over the Mid-Atlantic. Image courtesy


Forecast Confidence: HighGradual Improvement -- Dry. With the upper low well to our south, cloud cover should gradually break during the day. Expect more clouds than sun in the morning, and then a mix of the two in the afternoon -- with high temperatures 65-70.

Right now Columbus Day looks excellent weatherwise, with partly sunny skies and highs 70-75.
