Hello fall! Saturday was the official start of fall, and Mother Nature delivered on cue. Brisk, cool air arrived Sunday with a breeze out of the northwest and highs struggling to get to 70 degrees. As the breeze drops overnight, so will the temperatures. We are going down to 44 at BWI-Marshall, with outlying areas even cooler. There is a frost advisory in effect for Garrett County overnight, as temperatures will drop into the 30s.
Other than patchy morning fog, expect sunshine Monday with high pressure in control. Highs will be similar to Sunday, only making it to near 70 degrees. Then, temperatures will slowly recover Tuesday and Wednesday, eventually making it back to and slightly above the average of 76 degrees. That’s just as another cold front moves our way.
Clouds will be back on the increase Tuesday ahead of the front. Scattered showers and maybe thunderstorms will hold off until later Wednesday with the front itself. There is the chance for showers into Thursday before that part of the front moves away. However, another front could follow right on its heels with showers Friday. We will have to see if the pattern gets stuck with yet another front moving through over the weekend, or if things can get moving again by then.
