BLOG: Mild Monday
While the weekend got off to a rather windy start, yesterday was a nicer day across Maryland and the mid-Atlantic region. Early today, we’re noticing some widely separated showers occurring in West Virginia and the southern tier counties in Pennsylvania. A front is in the process of pushing to the south and east, but it has VERY LIMITED moisture to work with.
Therefore, we only expect a few sprinkles in the WJZ-TV viewing area early this morning, and most of those probably occur to the north and the west of Baltimore. From about 8 or 9 a.m. onward, Monday will be fairly sunny, breezy and mild. Highs will be in the lower 70s, just like they were Sunday.
Tomorrow will be another decent day. However, we are going to see some rain around here, starting tomorrow night and lasting pretty much “on and off” through Wednesday. The set up that will lead to rain spreading up the Eastern Seaboard involves two, separate pieces of energy that should phasing together on Wednesday. One low pressure system, along the leading edge of some much cooler air, will start to form tomorrow over the Tennessee Valley. Meanwhile, another body of low pressure, which will be emerging in the eastern Gulf of Mexico tomorrow morning, will have a subtropical connection. Putting in the “plainest of terms,” it appears that these two pieces will eventually “morph into” one intensifying low pressure system on Wednesday as it begins its trek to the north. Therefore, thickening clouds tomorrow night should be followed by a few periods of rain on Wednesday, some of which could be heavy enough to cause some minor flooding issues.
