Another day, more sunshine.
High pressure is still dominating our weather pattern, and will for a few more days. The one difference is that it is slowly drifting off to the east of us. Since winds rotate clockwise around the high, that means that our winds will slowly turn around to the south and bring warmer air into Maryland.
The average high drops to 79 degrees. We will be above that average, topping out in the low 80s. Highs will continue to top out in the 80s through Saturday before another round of cool air moves our way early next week.
The dry air over us has become so dominant, that it now looks like it will cause this weekend’s approaching front to fizzle. There is the chance for a shower or thunderstorm as it moves through Friday into Saturday (yes, earlier than Tuesday’s timing). That front gets out of here as another storm is generating down to our south. The southern storm looks like it will give us a better chance at showers and maybe thunderstorms later Monday into Tuesday.
In the tropics, we now have tropical storm Nadine. It is strengthening way out in the Atlantic and could become a hurricane. But it also looks like it will re-curve and stay over the water.
