    The combination of three atmospheric features will likely trigger rain beginning later today, forecasters say.

    A surface cold front and an associated trough will begin approaching the region during the day and likely interact with moisture feeding into Hurricane Matthew.

    Rain chances will begin increasing during the afternoon hours, likely becoming steady and heavy at times from the evening through Sunday morning.

    Winds could gust around 25 miles per hour during the period, with potentially above 35 miles per hour at the immediate coast, according to NOAA.

    High temperatures will be around 70 degrees tomorrow, dropping into the upper 60s on Sunday. Skies will become gradually sunny during the afternoon.

    Sunny and breezy weather is on tap for Columbus Day, and it’ll be cooler in the lower 60s.
