Warming to the 70s this week… Temperatures will climb to the upper 60s this afternoon, 10+ degrees warmer than yesterday. We will see sunshine today with clouds moving in later this afternoon to evening. Temperatures will only drop to the 40s overnight.

We will climb to the low and mid 70s for the second half of the work week. Sunny skies will continue for Wednesday with partly cloudy skies for Thursday and Friday.

Our next potential for rain will be on Saturday. There is a cold front set to track across the Mid-Atlantic near the start of the weekend. It will likely bring us a cool down but could also bring in showers. Temperatures will drop to near 60 on Saturday and to the low 50s on Sunday.
