The rain moves out and the sunshine returns….If you’re tired of all the rain we’ve seen this weekend, then you’re in luck. We’re tracking a good deal of sunshine for the work week. But first, on Monday morning, a few lingering showers are possible. A few snowflakes could mix in as well for some of our far northern areas, especially the northern Eastern Shore.  Otherwise, as we go through the day, expect gradual clearing. High temperatures will climb into the low and mid 50s by afternoon. Winds will be fairly breezy from the northwest between 10 and 20 mph.  More sunshine is expected from Tuesday through Thursday. Highs will reach the lower 60s on Tuesday, rising into the low and mid 70s Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday, a front moves into the area, giving way to rain. Some rain could stick around into Easter weekend, too. High temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s next Saturday and Sunday.  Have a good week!

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (50%). Cold and Windy. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 30s. Winds: N 15-20 mph.
