 Forecast Discussion:

Clouds will lower late tonight with a light easterly wind as a low pressure system and a cold front approach from the west. This is a fairly strong storm system and it will spread rain across Delmarva by late morning Wednesday. This looks to be a rather heavy rainfall event and it will break our drought with nearly everyone getting over .50 inches. Some spots will get up to 1.5 inches of rain Wednesday. Winds will turn to the NW quickly Wednesday evening as a strong frontal boundary passes through.

It will clear and turn quite windy Wednesday night. Look for temperatures to fall to near 48 degrees by sunrise Thursday with winds gusting to over 30 mph. Thursday looks sunny with a gusty NW wind and highs near 60-62 degrees. Winds will gust to over 45 mph and Gale Warnings are posted for the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic with a Small Craft Advisory on the Chesapeake Bay beginning Wednesday at 6 PM and through Thursday.

 In the long range, Friday looks cool and dry with sunshine and lighter winds. Afternoon temps. Friday will reach the low 60's but the sunrise temps. will be in the low to mid 40's. Saturday looks sunny with high clouds and highs will be in the upper 60's. Clouds will increase Sunday with highs in the low 70's and more rain is possible by Monday.
