nonetheless everyone's going to be stuck in the clouds some of lots of rain just down to our south. virginia beach, north carolina, tons of rain this weekend. for us, the real question is how far north does all that moisture get? here's the way i see our rain chances coming. in that 30% to 40% for saturday and sunday. it's not a guarantee for rain. look at the moisture now across virginia and north carolina. all socked in with rain showers for now. here's the wain computer models handle the rain chances. maybe a bunch of sprinkles and showers. by 9:00, 10:00, rain more likely. southern maryland, the northern neck and through the day tomorrow, a whole lot in the way of cloud but not necessarily a lot in the way of rain chances. so with all that in mind, here's your seven-day forecast then. we're in the 50s and 60s. we'll be in the low 06s and 70s.
