... The remnants of Nestor will shift east off the Delmarva Peninsula tonight. High pressure will then build over the region Monday before a cold front crosses the area on Tuesday. High pressure returns Wednesday and Thursday, before another storm system approaches the Mid-Atlantic region toward the end of the week.
NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/... Low pressure associated with the remnants of Nestor sits just east of the Delmarva Peninsula this evening. Nestor's slow track through the Carolina's and Virginia Tidewater region is partly responsible for the lingering light rain and drizzle across the area late this afternoon and into this evening. Although with the varying degrees of drought conditions across the region, this was a very beneficial rain. A decent swath of 1 to 2 inches was observed along and south southeast of the metros, with lesser amounts to the north northwest, generally around a half an inch with localized amounts up to an inch.
As the low continues pushing further east northeast off the coast overnight, dry conditions will prevail with any lingering light rain or drizzle coming to an end over the next couple of hours. Low clouds will likely hang around through much of the night, with some clearing possible towards daybreak, resulting in areas of patchy dense fog. Low temperatures tonight will remain in the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Linger stratus clouds will lift and diminish around mid morning Monday, as winds turn out of the east southeast Monday afternoon as high pressure builds over the region. Plenty of sunshine is expected as a result, with temperatures running near or slightly above normal for the middle of October, topping out in the mid to upper 60s.
SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/... Next frontal system is expected to approach the area Tue with prefrontal showers expected to move into our area late Monday night (after 06Z Tue). Expect widespread showers Tue as cold front crosses the area and area of low pressure forms to the south and crosses the area. Rainfall amounts with this system will be lighter with amounts generally in the quarter to half inch range. Showers should exit the area Tue evening.
LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... High pressure will build over the region Wednesday and Thursday, before sliding offshore on Friday ahead of an approaching low pressure system out of the southeast. This will result in dry days on both Wednesday and Thursday, and even most of Friday. High temperatures each day will be in the low to mid 60s, with Thursday being the coolest of the three days. Overnight lows will be in the mid 40s on Wednesday and Thursday.
Meanwhile, a very strong mid/upper level trough will be sliding out of the northern Plains and digging deep into the southeastern U.S. by the end of the week, and possibly cutting off. This upper-level energy will interact with the baroclinic zone along the Gulf coast to form an area of surface low pressure somewhere in the lower Mississippi River valley. From there, where the low goes is a little up in the air at this point. Will be dependent on if the system cuts off from the main trough axis or not, which would result in a slower moving system sliding by to our west. Whereas, if the system were to remain embedded within the main trough axis, it would likely ride up the east coast. Either way, some rain will be possible late week into the weekend.
