Today’s Forecast: October 9, 2018
Tonight will be warm and mostly cloudy as lows drop into the upper 60s to low 70s. Wednesday will likely be the last mainly dry summer-like day, as skies will be partly sunny with highs in the low to mid 80s. Widely scattered showers are possible on Wednesday night as the first batch of moisture from Michael and the cold front enter Delmarva with sizzling overnight temperatures in the low 70s.
Thursday will mainly be cloudy and wet with periods of rain and slowly increasing winds and highs in the low 80s. Winds will likely pickup by Thursday night with rain and overcast skies. Friday will mainly be breezy with morning showers, but highs will be in the upper 60s. Skies will be gradually clearing throughout the day, as drier and cooler settles in, while winds will be on the decrease throughout the day and into Friday night.
The exact amount of rain and wind intensity expected on Delmarva is still uncertain at this moment, since it depends on how fast the cold front and Michael are moving but also their respective locations over the next few days. Areas south and east of Salisbury and Georgetown will likely see the heaviest amounts of rain and gustiest winds through Friday morning. Stay tuned for updates.
Saturday will consist of sunny skies and cool temperatures in the mid 60s. Sunday will be mostly sunny and comfortable in the upper 60s. Another cold front is on the horizon by Monday, bringing partly cloudy skies with isolated showers late and highs in the low 70s. A lingering shower is possible on Tuesday, as skies begin to clear with readings in the upper 60s.
Have a great night!
