comes down fairly hard and it goes all the way back into west virginia. it's all moving in the same direction. so it's going to be hard to clear out as we go through the afternoon. i think the computer models may be too fast on this for the clearing. by 3:00, the rain ending at the coastline. well, that's why we just look at computer models. we don't necessarily believe them 100%. and perhaps a few more showers later on this afternoon. but by this evening, things are drying out. clearing out and setting us up for tomorrow. but then, moisture starts coming back. friday, here comes the rain. generally friday night, the east wind though starting. once the east wind starts, it will stay around for a while. we may have issues with coastal flooding by the time the weekend is over. because it's east wind, day after day after day, and a lot of rain on saturday. we could possibly see a bit of a break sunday.
11:53 am
but it looks like the rain would be coming back on monday. for this afternoon, more showers. temperatures in the 40s north and west, 50s south and east. still not as cold as yesterday. tomorrow, the only sunny day that we're seeing, because here comes the rain. friday night, rainy day on saturday, chance of the rain continuing sunday. there's possible break. more on that this afternoon. then monday and tuesday look wet, too. we will be right back.
