A stagnant jet stream pattern and a lot of dry air prevented the D.C. region from getting the dousing that it needs.

Sunday continues to look like the wettest day of this coastal storm, though we're still not seeing any blockbuster rainfall totals.

Erosion and dangerous surf at the beaches through the weekend, while rain reaches the D.C. area most likely late Saturday.

The models are split on whether Philadelphia will see showers through the day or a completely dry Sunday.

Uncertainty is still high but overall rainfall totals are expected to be lower than previous forecasts.

Some models forecast the heaviest rain over the weekend while others hold it off until late Sunday through early Tuesday.

Unsettled weather promises to plague the D.C. area Thursday-Friday thanks to a vigorous vortex plunging towards and then curling around the region

A storm will either come up the East Coast or drift out to sea later this week. The D.C. area could get drenched or a mere graze.

Much to the chagrin of snow lovers, little cold air will feed into this storm so much of the region is favored to receive more rain than snow

Enough cold air may linger over western parts of the region for a little ice late tonight before turning to all rain.
