Well, things are a little more clear this morning. The forecast continues to be in its own world.
A wave of low pressure develops in the Southeast and tracks across the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday — in fact the model also indicates enough cold air filters in to allow some snow to mix in late Tuesday afternoon over northern and northwestern areas.
In any event, today will be relatively nice with sunshine and mid- to upper-50s!
Monday, in time for Orioles home opener, we’re challenging the day’s record high of 83 degrees. First pitch time of 3:05 p.m. will see temps on the rise. Expect mid 70s and a daytime high of about 80 to 82.
The long-range should feature sunshine for the mid-week period with clouds increasing late Thursday and rain chances by Friday. An upper-level ridge will slide eastward with a weak clipper-like system passing to the north Wednesday night. Some showers are possible, but Thursday should be nice with warm advection once again commencing Friday as a weak upper-level disturbance and associated surface low move through the area. Unsettled through the weekend and into early next week as a deep trough in the west slowly translates eastward with a series of upper-level disturbances ejecting eastward ahead of it… thus rain chances for several days as we see it right now. That of course will change as we head into next week and can better hone in on individual disturbances with more certainty.
Have a great day!
