There is a large high pressure system spreading out across the Northeast early Friday morning, which will provide Maryland with lots of sunshine and very nice weather.
High temperatures will be mostly in the mid and upper 70s, with the humidity remaining quite low. Meanwhile, the regional radar mosaic is showing a series is showing a few showers and thunderstorms “grazing” the Carolina Coast early Friday. Eventually, this will mean that a more unsettled weather pattern will be returning to Baltimore — but
we don’t envision clouds becoming more widespread until Sunday, and whatever shower or thunderstorm activity there is will probably hold off until Sunday night and early next week.
With a low pressure system expected to form near the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday and linger along the coast for a
couple of days, our wind flow out of the east and southeast should push Atlantic moisture all the way back to the spine of the Appalachians. Therefore, even though we don’t think there will be “excessive” rainfall occurring here early next week, this pattern should evolve into one that is much more dull and dreary, with occasional showers and even a thunderstorm or two. Cloud cover will have a major impact on temperatures, which could be LOWER than
the 77 we’re carrying on Monday and the 80 we have on Tuesday and Wednesday. Those details will be ironed out in the near future, but for now — we can ENJOY THE PREAKNESS FESTIVITIES THIS WEEKEND!
Have a good day!!!
