Showers through the weekend and watching Hurricane Matthew...
Areas around DC and Baltimore lucked out with this storm as the heaviest rain moved just east of there, but areas of Northern Delaware received an incredible 13 inches of rain. Click here to view the unreal totals.
We will continue to have showers through the weekend, then a slight chance of a shower Monday, and especially Tuesday. Highs will range from the mid 50's in Northeastern PA to the mid 60's in Central NJ tomorrow, to the upper 50's to low 60's in Northeastern PA, Orange and Putnam Counties in NY, and in Northern Fairfield County, CT, to the upper 60's to low 70's in Central NJ, then to the upper 60's to low 70's Monday and the mid to upper 60's Tuesday.
Wednesday and Thursday should then be nice with highs in the mid to upper 60's.
Next Friday we will have a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm as a cold front approaches. Highs should be in the mid to upper 60's.
Next Saturday through Monday should then be nice with highs in the mid to upper 60's next Saturday, dropping to the low 50's to low 60's next Sunday and the upper 50's to mid 60's next Monday.
Next Tuesday we will have a chance of a shower or thunderstorm as a cold front passes through our area. Highs will be in the upper 60's to low 70's.
Next Wednesday and Thursday should then be mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 60's.
As for Hurricane Matthew, it is now a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 140 mph. This storm will move north, cutting across either Hispaniola or Eastern Cuba, then into the Bahamas Wednesday and Thursday. The track after that is quite uncertain. It could move west towards Florida, head north and threaten the Carolinas, or further up the east coast, or it could head out to sea. At this moment in time I am most concerned with this storm sitting over the Bahamas for a couple of days and then heading west towards Florida. Anyone living along the East Coast from Florida all the way to Maine should be keeping a close eye on this system for the middle to end of next week.
