Few more days of sun before rainy pattern moves in

National Weather Service graphic

Sunday brings a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm or shower.

Tonight: Scattered showers, still muggy. Conditions turning humid tonight with dewpoints in the low 70s.

Tomorrow: Rain likely, breezy. There will only be a slight risk of a shower on Thursday, and by Friday it should be mostly sunny with highs still in the 70s. Showers are likely all day long as the cold front moving through eastern Kentucky this morning gets pushed back to the north by the remnants of Hurricane Nate. Rain from Nate will begin decreasing Sunday night. Once we get into the middle of October the colors should be better along the coast.

Friday afternoon will clear out to mostly sunny conditions with highs above normal in the mid/ upper 80s and winds will keep out of the south/ southeast at 5-15 miles per hour.

Expect highs all week to be in the upper 80s to lower 90s and heat indices topping out in the mid 90s. Winds will be light, and the tides are high after noon. But they could become steadier toward morning as the circulation from Nate nears the region.

Wednesday will have clouds and sun with a few showers or a storm possible. Stay tuned for updates as we monitor the rainfall potential. Keep reading for the forecast through midweek...

It certainly won't be a crisp and clear stretch of early Autumn bliss, but at least the bulk of the rain holds off until Monday, when the remnants of Hurricane Nate approach New England. Can't rule out an isolated tornado as well, as there looks to be plenty of spin in the lower atmosphere.

High temps this weekend will be in the 70s at the shore, above 80 expected inland. Nate is now a Category 1 with 90 miles per hour wind and could become slightly stronger before making landfall tonight, sometime around midnight somewhere close to the Mississippi Delta and/or at the Mississippi coast.

In the wake of a warm front Saturday morning, it turned much warmer and more humid with a gusty southerly breeze Saturday afternoon as highs made the upper 70s and low 80s.

Following the chance for rain, Friday will be sunny and temperatures will start to warm up again for next weekend.

An eventful sky over Silver Spring yesterday evening.
