WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Showers and cool weather continue for Monday

Be prepared to have your rain gear on hand over the next few days. One departing low-pressure system will trade places with another low, which will develop off the Delmarva Peninsula tonight and really be in no hurry to move anywhere for several days. That means more showers, cool weather and gusty winds are in our future tonight and on Monday as well.
