Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 3:38 p.m. Oct. 9, 2015
Keep the umbrella ready as we will likely have more showers and even a few thunderstorms Friday. Temperatures will shoot to near 80 degrees. A cold front will approach the region, eventually sinking to the south and east Friday night — after 9 p.m. Winds will pick up during the afternoon and stay breezy through the first half of Saturday. The best window from rain will be from 3 p.m. in our western suburbs to the east and off to the eastern shore after 8 p.m./9 p.m. There could be some gusty winds as well as heavy downpours through as the rain moves through. As the front sinks south, winds will really pick up, gusting up to 25 -35 mph at times during the overnight.
Sustained winds around 10-15 mph are expected through the first part of Saturday but will eventually die down through the afternoon. Clouds will diminish during the afternoon after starting off with cloudy conditions on Saturday. Temperatures will be much cooler, only topping out in the mid to upper 60s! Overnight lows on Saturday night into Sunday with clear skies with drop into the 30s and 40s! So after a chilly start on Sunday morning, we are back around 70 with sunny skies on Sunday with mid 70s on Monday. Light rain chances return on Tuesday as another front moves through the region.
