Tuesday & Wednesday
While Tuesday will start out with sunshine for some, most areas will see scattered showers by the afternoon to evening hours. The coast will start off cloudy and wet as a low pressure system moves up from the south. A cold front will approach the region from the west, bringing with it scattered showers and occasional thunderstorms from Tuesday night into Wednesday. Highs will still hover in the low 80s due to a southerly flow of warm air. The front is expected to slowly move offshore late Wednesday, only to be replaced by an inland low pressure system that will keep the rain over the East for an extra 24 hours.
Friday & the Weekend
With a stalled cold front just offshore, we may start Friday with a few scattered showers, particularly towards the coast. The rain shouldn't last all day as skies will clear in the afternoon. Highs will be about 5° cooler for most areas, only reaching the mid to upper 70s all the way through the weekend. Cloud cover will recede little by little until we are left with mostly sunny skies by Saturday and Sunday.
A tropical wave will be moving from the deep Atlantic towards the Caribbean through the weekend. The wave has a high (70%) chance of strengthening to a tropical storm as it moves westward over the next 48 hours. The next name on the list is Matthew.
