Our area has cloudy skies early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures range from the low 60s in the Clifton area down to the mid 50s further inland, there is a northeast breeze.
A storm off the Carolina coast that may become tropical will move up the coast and then out to sea on Wednesday, rain from this system should move into the area tonight with coastal areas getting higher amounts while inland little or no rain is expected. It will be unseasonably cool with most high temperatures in the upper 60s, there also will be a brisk onshore wind.
As the storm moves away we should see plenty of sunshine on Wednesday with milder temperatures.
Warmer on Thursday ahead of a cold front that will cross the area in the afternoon, only a slight chance of a shower is anticipated with the front.
Quite cool but dry on Friday.
After a very cool start with morning lows in the 40s on Saturday we then will become milder in the afternoon, however a frontal system may give us some rain Saturday night into Sunday.
