Eric: Widely scattered rain showers expected Monday afternoon

It does look like rain chances are highest along and west of the Blue Ridge. If we see enough instability a few storms could pop up as well. Highs will remain in the upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s. Highs by mid week will top out in the middle to upper 70s. Winds E 5-10 (10-20 miles per hour west of Manhattan). Lows tonight will bottom out near 50 under mostly clear skies with winds out of the northeast. Winds E/SE 5-10 miles per hour.

EXTENDED: Chances for showers and storms will begin to increase starting Wednesday with a more active pattern into the weekend. The biggest threat with any storm that gets going will be wind and hail. Our high climbs into the mid 80s.

With this second round of thundershowers, some isolated storms could be on the strong side. It won't rain everywhere all day everyday but we'll have to monitor the specific details within this timeframe as we go throughout the week. Highs will certainly be dependent on cloud cover and how long it rains for.

EXTENDED: Monday will be an absolutely lovely day with full sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the middle 70s. Clearing skies by Tuesday morning will drop temperatures slightly below freezing but sunny and mild is likely by Tuesday afternoon.
