Tracking more rain, wind and chilly temps….As we move through our Sunday, keep your umbrella handy. We’re keeping an eye on an area of low pressure that will spin offshore and strengthen. This setup will give way to scattered rain on and off through Sunday, along with gusty winds and chilly temperatures. Winds will blow in from the north-northeast between 15 and 20 mph, which could produce some minor tidal flooding.  The winds will also usher in some very chilly weather. High temperatures will likely be in the morning, into the upper 40s, falling into the mid 40s by afternoon.

Some lingering rain is possible early Monday morning as the low moves north.  It’s also not out of the question that a couple of snowflakes could mix in with the rain for parts of the Eastern Shore early Monday. Otherwise, expect gradual clearing as we go through the day. High temperatures will be in the lower 50s. From Tuesday through Thursday, we’re tracking sunshine. Highs will climb back into the low and mid 70s. Then, next Friday into Saturday, the rain returns. Highs will dip back into the 60s next Saturday.

Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (60%). Chilly and Windy. Low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: NE 15-25 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (60%). Chilly and Windy. High temperatures in the upper 40s. Winds: N 15-20 mph.

Monday: Lingering rain possible (30%). Then, gradual clearing. High temperatures in the lower 50s. Winds: NW 10-20 mph.
