A few isolated showers will be possible along the coast overnight, but most will stay dry. Temps will level off, with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.

More clouds are expected to close the work week Friday. The cold front that is draped across the area will fade away, keeping the mostly cloudy skies. An isolated shower will also be possible, with highs in the low 80s.

The weekend still looks a bit unsettled. Expect partly sunny skies Saturday with again an isolated shower possible. Highs for Saturday will be in the low 80s.

Rain chances will increase on Sunday under mostly cloudy skies as another cold front nears the area. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid-80s.

The frontal boundary will just meander across the state, keeping rain chances and clouds in place for next week. Highs both Monday and Tuesday will be in the low 80s.

Better weather is ahead for the back end of next week as the front dissipates. Temps will stay warm, with highs holding in the low 80s.

Boaters should expect a few isolated showers Friday, with seas 3-4 feet and a southeasterly wind at 5-10 knots. Surfers will find poor to fair conditions with an easterly windswell mix.

Atlantic coast water temps remain in the 50s and low 60s.
