The region will get a nice opportunity to dry out over the next couple of days as we will enjoy abundant sunshine and highs in the 70s. It will also be a little breezy today as some cooler air begins the process of blowing in. That cooler airmass will allow for lows tonight and Saturday night will drop into the upper 40s in many Piedmont locations.
Another upper air low will form just to our northwest Sunday into Monday. As that occurs, an area of low pressure will form just offshore. These features will provide us with some shower chances as well as a continuous feed of chilly air from the northeast.
Sunday will feature at least some chance of a few late day showers with Piedmont highs in the 60s. Monday is looking quite cool with a cloudy sky, some periodic showers, and many Piedmont highs only in the mid to upper 50s!
Highs should try to rebound into the 60s Tuesday and Wednesday as more sun gradually works in, and the end of next work week looks terrific with sunshine and highs in the 70s.
We are monitoring a tropical wave east of the Lesser Antilles. Some slow development is possible with that area.
