WEATHER BLOG: Rain Thursday…Sun Friday
A very quick glance at the regional radar and satellite imagery indicates that moisture associated with a wave of low pressure located in the Ohio Valley and a warm front extending eastward into the mid-Atlantic states is spreading out across areas west of the Greater Baltimore Area.
By and large, showers will overspread the viewing area from west to east early Thursday morning, and then they will creep farther to the north and east Thursday afternoon and early evening.
Some places may actually get a thunderstorm Thursday evening before clearing occurs.
On the heels of Thursday’s wave of low pressure that will be tracking to the mid-Atlantic Coast late in the afternoon, a cool front will be moving through the area early evening.
So, even though Friday will turn out mostly sunny, which is something we had thought since the week began, there will be a gusty northwesterly wind that will average 12-25 mph with gusts of around 35 mph — and it will also be cool.
Most temperatures will probably be no higher than the mid-60s, and it will “feel like” it’s in the upper 50s in the afternoon.
As for the upcoming weekend, we’ll be following yet another wave of low pressure that will be developing in the middle of the country Thursday evening and Friday.
This low pressure system should cause clouds to return/gradually increase on Friday night and early Saturday, and then some spotty rain may occur Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Temperatures both days should be no higher than the lower 60s.
Have a good day!
