    Wednesday 7 a.m.

    My video shows two different scenarios on the extent of rain from a storm now just off the North Carolina coast. Rain appears likely for the I95 corridor from Richmond through D.C. and on northeast to New York City. Places outside the storm's reach will have fine weather for the rest of the week,


    This map shows the pressure pattern around the Carolina coastal storm. The strongest winds are found where the lines are closest together.

    The upper-air pattern is forecast to change from one favoring warmth across the Great Lakes and most of the Northeast to one favoring the advance of chilly air from central Canada, The top map is a forecast for late this week; the bottom is for two weeks from today.
