WEATHER BLOG: A Warm Thanksgiving Is In The Works
We are stuck between a strong high pressure over New England and a spinning low pressure just off the Carolina coast. The northern high is keeping the southern storm locked up to the south, but it is close enough that clouds have come in Sunday. It is also this combination of high and low that have kicked up the breeze out of the northeast.
We will remain locked in this set up again Monday and Tuesday. So expect a northeast breeze and times of clouds with temperatures still running slightly below the average of 56 degrees. There is the chance for a few showers to reach southern Maryland either overnight or Monday night.
Then, a new front off to the west will swing through Tuesday night/Wednesday. The front will be pretty dry as it passes through. It will mix up the atmosphere and start to clear things out for the second half of the week. When that happens, temperatures will rise. We are looking at highs getting close to 60 degrees on Thanksgiving and low 60s on Friday. However, another front will come through Friday night or early Saturday.
There is the chance for a few showers with the weekend front. What we will really notice, though, is the colder air that will follow for the rest of the weekend.
