WEDNESDAY: Variable cloudiness with a slight chance of showers. More clouds and a better chance of showers in coastal areas as Maria makes its closest approach to Virginia, but still offshore. Lows in the upper 60s, highs in the mid 80s. (Rain Chance: 20%)

**Note: It still appears the core of Hurricane Maria should stay a good distance offshore of Virginia and North Carolina. That said, the track has shifted SLIGHTLY to the west today...this would increase the chance for some rain showers in coastal areas along with some gusty wind potential on Tuesday into Wednesday. In addition, rough surf and dangerous rip currents will be a threat much of next week.**
