Warming up for the weekend… Bundle up this morning, with temperatures in the 20s and low 30s. Highs will reach to near 50 this afternoon, near normal for this time of year. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds with light winds. We will warm back into the 60s this weekend with partly cloudy skies. Winds will pick up a bit for Saturday but will relax again for Sunday. Rain chances will remain low for most of the weekend. A few showers may sneak in late Sunday night but it will be a soggy first half of next week. A string of fronts and an area of low pressure will move over the Mid-Atlantic, bringing us rain for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Temperatures will linger near normal for most of next week.
