The extended forecast calls for clouds and sun on Wednesday with a chance of evening showers. The low will be around 40 and the high will be in the lower 60s. A chance of showers on Thursday with a low in the upper 40s and a high in the mid to upper 50s. A chance of showers on Friday with a low in the upper 40s and a high in the mid to upper 50s.

Low pressure over the Delmarva Peninsula will continue to intensify and produce widespread rain showers around the Middle Atlantic region today. Most of the rain will be on the light side, but a few showers could be moderate to heavy at times. Many locations have already received 1 to 2 inches of rain over the past two days. Another 1/2 to 1 inch of rainfall today is not out of the question. In addition to the falling rain, temperatures will be chilly today with highs only in the upper 40s (this is about 10 degrees colder than average for the end of March.) Eventually the center of low pressure will begin to pull away from the region and the showers will taper to mist this evening. High pressure will gradually build over the area on Monday. This will break up the clouds and reveal sunshine during the afternoon, but it will be windy at times on Monday with highs in the upper 50s. A more southerly flow will develop around the center of high pressure, and this will allow temperatures to rise into the mid and upper 60s on Tuesday A few spots may hit 70 degrees. A cold front will move from west to east across the region on Tuesday night and Wednesday. Although the frontal passage will have little moisture to work with, a wave of low pressure may develop along the front on Wednesday and Thursday with a chance of rain showers.
