BALTIMORE (WJZ) – A warmup is on the way, but so is rain.
It’s a cool and sunny day out there Monday. High pressure is hanging on just enough to keep the skies clear. However, that high is quickly moving offshore. Right behind it is the next storm. Clouds will increase overnight, then the rain will arrive tomorrow. We think that it should move in during the middle of the day as a lighter rain and drizzle. Then, it will become heavy at times overnight and Wednesday with the chance for a thunderstorm.
Winds will also really pick up during this storm. They will start gusting out of the south tomorrow, then remain high as they eventually transition to the northwest behind the storm Wednesday night and Thursday. Those southerly winds will bring us a temporary warmup. Highs will get close to 60 degrees tomorrow. Temperatures will remain up through the night and be close to 60 again Wednesday before they really start dropping behind the storm Wednesday night and Thursday.
Yes, another round of cold air is on the way for the second half of the week – and it looks like this cold air will stick around for a while. Highs will only be in the 40s Thursday right through the weekend. At the same time, another lake-effect snow event will kick off Thursday night into Friday. That means that there could be snow showers in western Maryland while the rest of us get those big building up clouds.
So that brings us to the big game…and game weather….for this Sunday. An early outlook is that there could be another, yet much weaker, storm on the way. We will obviously stay on top of this and keep you updated.
Happy Cyber Monday shopping!
