After a brisk, fall weekend, warmer air is on the way.
We dropped down to 30 degrees at BWI-Marshall overnight. Some areas were down in the 20s. Sunshine helped warm us up this afternoon, but only to 59 degrees. Even though that’s cool, it’s just one degree shy of the ever fall average high. After another chilly night, we are going back above average for the next few days.
We are stuck in a wedge of dry air that lies between two different storms. One is off the Southeast coast and the other is out over the Rockies. The coastal storm isn’t going anywhere quickly, keeping this weather pattern stopped up for a few days. That means that the dry weather will continue for us. Other than areas of morning fog, there will be a lot of sunshine Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
Some clouds will start to arrive ahead of the next storm on Wednesday. Expect more clouds and maybe some rain Wednesday night and Thursday. That storm will pull away with the rain on Friday. When it does, it will replace the mild air with another shot of chilly air heading into the weekend.
An interesting, but not so exciting aside… Sunset today was at 5 PM. Sunset tomorrow is at 4:59 PM. ‘Tis that season again.
