Nicondra: More moisture and higher rain chances
Source: FOX 8

(WVUE) - Most of the weekend turned out pretty well with plenty of blue sky and sunshine, but increasing moisture and an upper-level low moving in from the east helped spark a few storms. We will continue to see an increase in coverage through Monday afternoon.

Expect drier air to move in for the middle of the week taking rain chances back down and temperatures up ahead of our next cold front. The front should arrive during the day on Friday bringing a chance for rain into the picture. It will move out quickly being replaced by much drier and true fall feeling cooler air. Lows will dip to the low 60s with some 50s on the north shore and highs in the middle 80s next weekend.

Maria will continue to move north through the Western Atlantic over the weekend. It will need to be monitored for impacts along the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast U.S. coastline. Lee continues to meander in the middle of the Atlantic.

Elsewhere no additional storms are developing across the Atlantic.
