Cooler but with more rain and storms… A stationary front has parked itself across the Mid-Atlantic. That means more showers and storms in the forecast over the next several days. We will see mostly cloudy skies today with areas of fog and drizzle this morning. Expect on and off showers and storms again today. Rain could be heavy at times with more localized flooding possible.

We will get a break in temperatures today with highs in the mid 70s. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 70s to finish the work week. The chances for showers/storms will continue through at least Friday but will gradually become less widespread and more scattered as we approach the weekend.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, AM Fog/Drizzle, Showers/Storms(80%). Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: NE 5-15

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms(80%). Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: NE 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms(60%). Highs in the upper 70s. Winds: NE 5-10
