More Clouds, Rain Tomorrow
We'll have an increase in cloud cover tonight as the remnants of Tropical Storm Beta advance in our direction. Moisture from Beta arrives Thursday afternoon, though I cannot rule out a pre-lunch shower tomorrow. Once the rain gets going it persists through Friday tapering off Friday night.

It's all about Beta as we move through the rest of the work week and into the weekend. The remnant circulation of Beta is approaching Lake Charles, Louisiana this evening. From there it eventually moves northeast through western NC Friday and off the Mid Atlantic coast Saturday.
The increasing clouds we saw today are a precursor to Thursday's rain. A shower or two may meander into the region before lunchtime but tomorrow's rain is focused on the afternoon hours and beyond. Rain continues Thursday night and Friday becoming lighter Friday afternoon and tapering off Friday night for the most part. Rainfall totals will be around an inch with isolated higher amounts especially along the Blue Ridge. Temperatures are held back thanks to clouds and rain.
Despite Beta moving out of the region this weekend we're left in a subtle stew of moisture. I can't rule out a passing shower Saturday or Sunday though most of us stay dry. It will be warmer as well.
The first of two cold fronts early next week moves through Monday morning. We won't feel the first one in terms of temperatures. The second front arrives late Tuesday with scattered afternoon and evening showers. Thereafter, the door is opened for some pretty chilly conditions the second half of the week.
