On this somber day in U.S. history, the weather is eerily similar to that Tuesday morning in 2001.
A sprawling high pressure system is dominating the Northeast, delivering a crisp, dry air mass. Temperatures dropped to the upper 40s north and west of the city. It was in the low 50s for Baltimore, and only got to near 60 degrees along the water (since the Bay temperatures are still near 80 degrees).
Our average is 80 degrees. We will only recover to the upper 70s Tuesday before slowly getting back above average for the second half of the week. Overnight lows will also creep back to the low 60s by this weekend.
It’s not often that we get to write this, but the dry air mass is going to stick around for the rest of the week. Other than patchy overnight/early morning fog in the valleys and by the water, expect clear skies and sunshine. The next front doesn’t move our way until Saturday night or Sunday with some showers and maybe thunderstorms.
