WEATHER BLOG: Warmup Continues
The warmup continues. We got all the way to 57 degrees Saturday afternoon after starting out the day at 42 degrees. That low was already above our average high of 41 degrees this time of year.
Temperatures will remain in the 40s again Saturday night, as fog takes over. A dense fog advisory is in effect for the overnight hours, and there could even be a little drizzle in that fog. Clouds will try to mix with some sunshine Sunday. Even without a lot of sunshine, temperatures will soar again Sunday afternoon. We are going for a high near 60 degrees. If there does end up being a lot more sunshine than we thought, we will be in the mid 60s. The warm air will stick around into Monday before we get a dose of reality.
A cold front will bring some rain to the area Monday. That front will try to get out of here, but another low will draw that same front back up over Maryland Tuesday. At the same time, cold air will be making its press down into the state. So Tuesday will be the day things come crashing down. Expect rain with temperatures only reaching near 40 degrees that day — almost a 20 degree swing. The rain will slowly pull away Wednesday, but the more seasonable air will linger for the middle of the week with highs in the 40s.
There are signs that we could get an even colder push of air late next week. If it does work out, highs will only be in the 30s Friday and maybe Saturday.
