The morning rain has moved up into New England Monday afternoon. While sunshine has broken through across western Maryland, clouds, fog, and even spotty areas of drizzle are hanging tough around the Bay. The clouds are holding off a really nice warm up. Temperatures have already risen to the 60s in West Virginia and Virginia. It’s going to be mild around here regardless, but our temperatures will really start jumping if we could get some sun to break out here (and that’s still possible). As of 1 p.m., we are still sitting at 48 degrees in Baltimore with 50s across the Eastern Shore and in western Maryland.
Clouds will break up overnight and Tuesday as the winds really start picking up. They aren’t going to be as high as Friday night/Saturday, but a wind advisory goes into effect Monday afternoon for Garrett and Allegany Counties Tuesday for gusts up to 40 mph. It could also gust over 30 mph across the rest of the state. That wind will bring in drier, cooler air Tuesday. However, it’s still going to be above average with highs in the upper 40s.
With more seasonable air returning Wednesday, a new storm is going to move our way. The depth and supply of cold air is marginal. But since this storm will continue through Wednesday night into early Thursday morning, the timing might be just right for some winter weather. It’s looking like there could be all of snow, sleet, and rain across Maryland by the time this storm gets out of here Thursday morning. We will have more specific details on this one coming up – so stay tuned.
Dry air takes over Thursday and Friday before another storm comes our way. This next one looks like it will move through over the weekend, possibly bringing another chance at snow to the Mid-Atlantic.
