Rain will continue Tuesday, mainly after 7 a.m., the forecast said. It will otherwise be cloudy, with a high near 41. East winds will blow 10 to 15 m.p.h.
A chance of rain will continue into Tuesday night. Temperatures will remain above freezing – the overnight low will be 36 degrees – and the precipitation will not turn back to snow.
Forecasters are still tracking a second storm system that could affect the region later this week, but confidence in its track is still developing.
A second storm is expected to develop & intensify along the mid Atlantic coast Wednesday night & track east-northeast off the coast Thursday and Thursday night. This could bring another round of snow to the Ohio Valley, central Appalachians & mid Atlantic regions later this week. pic.twitter.com/qVatgNwSSR
