After another seasonably chilly start, the brilliant sunshine has warmed us up nicely Sunday afternoon. BWI-Marshall topped out at 74 degrees. The sunshine has now given way to a band of late day clouds as a weakening front moves across Maryland. Even if it looks more threatening, we are only getting clouds from this front. However, we really do need some rain. The rainfall deficit continues to climb (-.87″ for the month, -4.01″ for the year) and the gusty winds with dry conditions are making for a high fire danger statewide. Fortunately, we do have the chance for some showers over the next few days.
Another front moves our way Monday. This one will have more moisture with it, possibly bringing us some showers later in the day into Tuesday. It’s still just a chance and anything that does form will be scattered. Yet another front will quickly follow on Wednesday. This one will have even more moisture with it. But most of that moisture will create some rain for PA northward. We will be on the southern side with just the chance for scattered showers once again.
During this stretch of storms, temperatures are going to take a hit. We will make it to the mid 60s Monday, before only topping out in the upper 50s/near 60 degrees Tuesday through Thursday. Another warm up will slowly take over again late next week.
