The cold front pushed off to the south of us, taking the showers and clouds with it. Gusty northwest winds have brought in such dry air that we have wall to wall sunshine Monday afternoon. Even with a northwest wind, we warmed up to 60 degrees Monday afternoon. That is exactly average for this date. But as the winds die down Monday evening, so will the temperatures.
We are forecasting a low of 34 degrees with temperatures even lower north and west of the city. A frost advisory (Montgomery, Howard, Baltimore, Harford, Cecil Counties and Baltimore City) and a freeze warning (Carroll County westward) are in effect for the overnight hours.
A new storm will move our way starting Tuesday. There is not a whole lot to this storm, but we will see more clouds come in Tuesday with the chance for some showers Tuesday night into Wednesday. This front will draw warmer air with it, as temperatures climb to the mid 60s Tuesday and near 70 degrees on Wednesday.
The weather pattern will change slightly in the wake of this storm. As a trough sets up over the northern Atlantic, it will force the storm track off to our south. There are a few storms that will take this track Thursday into the weekend. At this point, it looks like those storms will stay south. But it’s something we will be watching closely. Stay tuned.
