Record warmth on tap for Saturday, cooling back down into next week

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A frontal boundary meandering across the Mid-Atlantic region will keep lots of cloud cover around into this evening, and we could see a few scattered showers here and there, mainly before sun-down. Overall though, rain chances look pretty slim until Sunday. Overnight tonight, we'll otherwise be partly to mostly cloudy, with a southwesterly breeze and mild low temps in the 50s and 60s.

The boundary to our north could push a few showers back into our area (mainly north of the I-64 corridor) early Saturday morning, but most will still stay dry. Strong March sun will help to scour out much of the cloud cover Saturday afternoon, allowing for some more sunshine. Highs Saturday will be pushing the 80 degree mark for many- possibly breaking temp records in several places! Saturday night will bring increasing cloud cover and mild low temps again in the 50s and 60s.

A cold front will then bring a better chance of rain on Sunday, but it is still NOT looking like a wash-out. Scattered showers and a few t-storms look possible on Sunday during the late morning and early afternoon, but should wrap up into Sunday night. Despite the cloud cover, highs will still be able to push into the upper 60s and low 70s on Sunday....but we will have a cooler air mass move in next week. Highs will retreat into the 50s, and lows will fall back into the 30s. Stay tuned!
