Myles Henderson’s Live VIPIR Forecast

A nice Fall Friday… Enjoy the pleasant weather today before a coastal storm tracks in for the weekend. Expect highs in the low 60s on Friday with a nice mix of sunshine and clouds. An isolated shower is possible but most areas will stay dry. An area of low pressure will move through the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday and then crank up off of the coastline before tracking north. Expect mostly cloudy skies, rain, strong winds, and even cooler air. Winds will steadily increase through Saturday with gusts to near 50 mph along the coast for Saturday night and Sunday morning. With strong winds from the north, some minor coastal flooding is possible. Expect highs in the upper 50s on Saturday and mid 50s on Sunday.
