BLOG: Cool And Damp … For Now
As a cool front continues to push eastward into central Pennsylvania and in upstate New York, a line of showers (albeit weakening as of this writing) is following it.
Along the immediate coast this morning, clouds have been thickening, and a light, southeast wind off of the ocean has led to patchy fog and even a bit of drizzle.
There should be plenty of clouds around today, as well as this fog for a while this morning, and a shower could pop up at almost any time. But we’re also going to be watching for the development of a new wave of low pressure this afternoon and early tonight.
We MUST BE CLEAR that this is not “T.S Sean,” which is currently located much farther to the south (in between the Bahamas and Bermuda). This new weather system will probably be taking shape soon enough near the shores of eastern Long Island and southeastern New England later on today to enhance their rainfall amounts somewhat. Therefore, while there will be several locations in and around the Greater Baltimore Area that will be hard-pressed to get as much as a tenth of an inch of rain by this evening, eastern New England could have an inch or more. And regardless of how much (or, “how little”) rain there is, no flooding problems are anticipated.
Temperatures will be in the upper-50s to near 60 today, even despite the clouds and some rain (which may vary quite a bit from west to east), but as the cool front makes a ‘clean sweep’ of the region early tonight, it will be ushering in some drier and chillier air… Winds late tonight will probably gust as high as 30 mph, and most temperatures will plunge into the upper-30s, making it noticeably colder than it is out there early this morning.
Tomorrow, Veterans Day, will be rather windy and cooler with temperatures mainly in the lower-50s. There should also be no less than partial sunshine.
