UPDATED THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st--6:00 AM
Mostly Sunny Skies
Wind: NE 5-10 mph
Beautiful, dry stretch continues another day or two before the next weather maker moves in for the weekend.
Thursday, it'll be back to mostly sunny skies and pleasant temperatures close to 80.
The next weather-maker develops to our south off the Florida, Georgia, and Carolina Coastline and clouds will thicken with cooler temperatures.
As the developing system moves north up the Southeast US Coastline Friday night into Saturday, it will intensify and could even gain some at least semi-tropical characteristics.
Most computer models then put the system onshore over the eastern portion of the Carolinas and Virginia into early Saturday. It should also be noted that there are also some outlier models that bring the system offshore with little impact to Central Maryland.
Most guidance, though, does bring the storm system closer to our neck of the woods with some form of heavy rain potential of at least an inch or two, gusty winds up to around 30 mph (with higher gusts over the water), and also the potential of some coastal flooding. The worst of the impacts would likely be Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday morning.
Thereafter, into early next week, the storm will gradually pull away with drying skies and highs rising back into the mid and upper 70s.
