WEATHER BLOG: Gettin’ Hot
Clouds and patchy fog are starting off this Friday, the big “Getaway Day” before the Memorial Day Weekend. With these expected to break for some sun Friday, and winds mostly out of the southeast becoming more southerly or
even southwesterly for a while Friday afternoon, it will become warm with most temperatures reaching the mid and upper 80s.
Any thunderstorm later Friday or early Friday night is most likely going to happen in areas north and east of Baltimore, and the chances for seeing a couple of showers and a thunderstorm Saturday and on Sunday will be even lesser.
Temperatures will probably wind up in the upper 80s and lower 90s, making it feel very “summer-like,” and then the focus of our attention on Memorial Day will be on a front located to the north of the Mason-Dixon Line. There could be
some sort of large complex of thunderstorms forming Sunday night or on Monday, which may impact parts of the WJZ viewing area, but there will probably also be long stretches of time which are rain-free. Therefore, we should not hesitate to call for temperatures close to or slightly above 90 once again on Monday. There is going to be a cool front during the middle of next week which will “clean house”, and that will chase our very warm and humid air out of the region by Wednesday night or Thursday.
