The recent rain has ended, but the regional radar is still showing an isolated shower in spots early Thursday. Total rain at BWI-Marshall amounted to about 1.55,” eating into our deficit for the year.
March gets off to a warm start, and the sky should be relatively clear Thursday night.
Friday, sun will fade behind clouds as the next, approaching front bears down on the eastern region at night and it eventually crosses our path on Saturday. It should rain for a while, and there could become rumbles of thunder, too. However, we could envision a scenario where the rain could end by early or mid-afternoon. Sunday and early next week will be somewhat chillier.
Models are trending faster with arrival of warm advection precipitation ahead of the next system, so we are adding a chance for a shower by late afternoon Friday. Taking the low Friday night up to 45 as it should not fall so much with strong warm advection going on. We’ll mention a shower Sunday afternoon or evening as a strong short wave digs into the long wave trough that will be setting up over the area. Said feature could bring a lot of snow to the mountains of western Maryland and West Virginia on Sunday and Sunday night.
Have a good day!
