First Alert Forecast: Clouds stick around, isolated shower possible

A slow-moving low pressure system centered off the Mid-Atlantic coast will continue to drive many clouds, but only isolated showers into our region.

WEEKEND FORECAST: Clouds could break for a few sun intervals. Shower chance: 20% Saturday and 30% Sunday. Highs: mainly mid 70s.  Wind: light northwest Saturday, northerly 8-12 mph Sunday. 

MONDAY AND TUESDAY: Stubborn clouds continue to hang around, with the low remaining offshore.  Monday will be overcast and breezy with a continued threat of patchy light showers (30%).  Highs will reach the low 70's. Tuesday should be slightly better with mostly cloudy skies and a few spotty showers (20%) as the low pulls away.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Expect partly sunny skies and warm afternoon highs. Daily high temperatures: upper 70s to near 80.   Late Friday a cool front approaches the area and it may touch off some isolated showers and thunderstorms.   

TROPICAL OUTLOOK: A disturbance in the eastern Atlantic Ocean has a 30 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone by the end of the week. However, this system would not likely go on to impact North America.
