Posted at 4:59 AM, Jun 01, 2015

An unsettled week ahead… A string of fronts will linger across the Mid-Atlantic for much of the work week. That will keep several chances for showers and storms in the forecast over the next several days. Today will be warm and muggy again, with highs in the upper 80s. We will see partly cloudy skies with a few scattered showers/storms developing by the afternoon.

Clouds, rain and storms will become more widespread for Tuesday but we will get a small break in temperatures. Highs will dip into the low 80s for Tuesday and into the upper 70s on Wednesday. The chances for scattered showers/storms will continue through Friday.

Today: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: SW/SE 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Lows near 70. Winds: S 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms(60%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SW/N 5-15
