Some Sunshine to Brighten Mid-Atlantic Through Midweek

While a nor'easter still lingers offshore, conditions will improve along the mid-Atlantic coast as the week progresses.

Dry weather and partly sunny skies will replace the clouds, rain, drizzle and wind that have been dominating the mid-Atlantic's weather recently as high pressure wins out over the nor'easter.

Areas that may stay stuck underneath the clouds are southern Virginia into the Carolinas.

There will be a skinny band of showers from the central Appalachians to New England along a front into Monday night.

Later this week, weather systems will resume their normal west-to-east motion and the storm lingering along the mid-Atlantic coast will get kicked out to sea.

Bathers and operators of small craft at the mid-Atlantic and Carolina beaches should continue to exercise caution, even after the dry weather returns.

The storm has weakened enough that the risk of coastal flooding is minimal but there can still be some rough surf and seas from Virginia to the southern tip of Florida.
