The same two different storms are still affecting Maryland.
There is one storm moving up the coast, while a second is draped over the Ohio Valley. The combination of these two storms is slowing down the weather pattern and creating an unsettled atmosphere over us. Showers and thunderstorms are scattered across the state today. Some of these will linger through the night. Then, there will be another round tomorrow and again on Thursday before these two storms eventually move away.
Although we will be in drier air behind those storms on Friday, we never fully clear out in this kind of a weather pattern. It will be a smaller chance, but there still is the chance for a thunderstorm or two to pop up Friday and Saturday. Another front will move our way over the weekend, maybe Sunday. This will up our thunderstorm chances once again.
Temperatures are slightly below the average of 87 degrees again today. However, they are going to creep back up to the 90s later this week and weekend.
We wrapped up July’s temperatures, and it was definitely a warm month. Despite the record cool day with a high of only 69 degrees, and the below average end to the month, our average high for July was 91.6 degrees. That included 21 days with temperatures at 90+ degrees, with 4 of them soaring to 100+ degrees.
