Morning clouds broke for sunshine today and we warmed all the way up to 61 degrees. This started a warmup that will conitnue through tomorrow, before another storm knocks us down again in the middle of the week. But even when we cool down, temperatures are not going to be that far from normal – which is now in the upper 40s.
Clouds will take over tonight, followed by some rain and drizzle as a warm front swings northward through Maryland. We will only drop into the 40s overnight and then spike up to near 70 degrees tomorrow when the warm front clears us. However, that will set us up for round two with this storm – the cold front part. This storm has already been producing severe weather from Arizona over to Tennessee, and the Storm Prediction Center has put all of Maryland in a slight risk (level 1 of a 3 level warning system) for severe thunderstorms here tomorrow. The biggest threat would be damaging winds with these storms and the outside chance of a tornado. Heavy rain is also a possibility in these thunderstorms. Of course if any watches or warnings come out, we will let you know about them both on the tv side and here at wjz.com.
The winds will pick up later tomorrow and continue overnight, even though the rain and thunderstorms will come to an end. Sunshine will return on Tuesday and the winds will start to calm down, although it will be cooler. Expect a high near 50 on Tuesday, but we go right back up to near 60 again on Wednesday for the first day of March. Another storm will pass north of us, through upstate New York and New England Wednesday. It may kick up the winds slightly and bring some clouds through, but what we will notice the most is the cool down behind it. Highs will drop back down into the 40s on Thursday.
The stormy weather pattern continues as we watch for another storm to move our way sometime next weekend.
The weather could get dicey tomorrow, so make sure you check in with the forecasts and wjz.com to see if any watches or warnings come out for our area.
