Mild & Showery
The mild fling will last us for two days as tomorrow will also be pretty mild (but with more sunshine). The first in a series of low pressure centers will cross the Mid Atlantic today and the trailing "cool" front will cross the region this evening. Showers will be off and on through the day, most plentiful in the afternoon and early evening hours. A period of rain will accompany the frontal boundary towards dinner; however, the rains will not be widespread and not last all day as there will be some lengthy breaks in the precipitation through the day. Rainfall amounts for the day should be under a half inch, with some spots getting less than a quarter inch.
In addition to the mild weather, southerly breezes will pick up later today...gusting to over 20 mph at times as gusty winds above the surface mix down somewhat to the ground. These gusts will pick up as the warm front passes through your location. Until then, winds will be light and generally from the northeast.
