AS THE FRONT SLIDES TO THE SOUTHEAST DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS...SHOWERS WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN WEST VIRGINIA AND DIMINISH IN COVERAGE AFTER MIDNIGHT. ALTHOUGH A STRONG WIND GUST OR TWO CANNOT BE RULED OUT...ANY CONCERN WITH THE WEATHER WOULD MORE LIKELY BE RELATED TO SHOWERS MOVING SLOWLY AND REPEATEDLY OVER THE SAME LOCATION. TOMORROW THE MAIN FOCUS WILL BE ALONG THE RIDGES OF PENNSYLVANIA...WEST VIRGINIA...AND MARYLAND...WITH THE REST OF THE FORECAST AREA REMAINING DRY. TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME AS TODAY...WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER HUMIDITY BEHIND THE FRONT.
