More Sun/Continued Breezy

Lots of clouds over the area this morning with give way to more sunshine during the afternoon.  We'll see more sunshine than yesterday.  With a chilly Northwest flow still in place, we will again see a breezy day with winds in the 15-20 mph range.  Temperatures will be slightly warmer than yesterday, but still well below average for this time of year.  Highs will reach the upper 30's to mid 40's across the region.

The talk over the next few days will be a developing coastal storm that will affect mainly southern areas of our region, south of the city.  The biggest concern from this storm will be along the beaches south of Atlantic City where strong winds, beach erosion and tidal flooding will be a strong possibility. No change in model data overnight, with the majority of them keeping the low well south moving off shore the NC coast never making it north of the NC/VA border.  This would mean only light precip for the city and the heaviest staying south, along a line from Baltimore to Dover to Cape May, NJ.  Only the GFS model is the further north, taking the system as far north as Ocean City, MD and giving the city and points south and east a significant amount of rain and/or snow.
