A sluggish upper level low that is spinning along the Mid-Atlantic coast is partially composed of the remnants of Ian. It will be around another day or two before finally getting kicked out to sea by Wednesday.
As this system releases us from its grip, expect increasing sunshine and warming daytime temperatures for today into Friday. It will be nice to see some sunshine again.
Lows at night will be cooler, due to our newfound clearing and the resulting radiational cooling after sunset.
A dry cold front will pass through here on Friday. It will bring a cooler air mass for the weekend, with some frost potential for Sunday and next Monday mornings in some of the favored valleys.
