BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Much of the viewing area is dry as the system from yesterday exits to the northeast. Skies should be mixed with some clouds and sunshine today on the northern edge of a high over the Southeast.
Temperatures should be right around normal in the mid 60s. The only thing keeping it from being a pleasant day will be gusty southwest winds which could be upwards of 45 mph at times.
Tonight we’ll see skies go partly to mostly clear allowing for temperatures to drop into the lower 40s.
Monday, light rain or showers will develop along a warm front extending across the mid-Atlantic, although it looks as if areas from the city and southward will be dry. Temperatures look like they’ll peak in the mid to upper 60s once again with more clouds than sunshine.
The boundary will become stationary across the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday and extend westward to a low over the central Plains. Rain will develop along the front from southern New England through the Midwest. The GFS is more pronounced with the rain then the older Euro which has some drier air wedged in between Mondays and Tuesdays features. We’ve allowed for the mention of a shower on Tuesday, although much of the activity will occur north of the viewing area.
By Wednesday, the low from the Plains will track into the Great Lakes, while the front will lift northward as a warm front throughout the day. We should get into the warm-sector which will give temps a boost.
There may be some showers around southeastern PA, but I think much of the WJZ viewing area will remain dry. The best chance for some rain and even thunder will come overnight as the cold front passes through.
Thursday morning we should be clearing out with high pressure extending from the Great Lakes to the mid-Atlantic. Winds will be westerly and breezy. Temperatures will be near normal but feel much cooler with the winds. Friday may be dry as the high holds over the eastern mid-Atlantic, although its difficult to rule out some rain at least in western areas.
We’ll see the chance for more wet weather Easter weekend as another storm system tracks through the Great Lakes and a warm front lifts across the Northeast.
