WEATHER BLOG: One Last Hurrah?
There will try to be one last hurrah late Thursday and Friday morning as a separate piece of energy swings down behind the storm and perhaps causes a few rain and snow showers. The best chance of precipitation with that feature is to the northeast of Baltimore but would not rule out something locally as well. Then some great weather is coming in for the weekend.
During the overnight hours the surface trough hanging back from the low over the Atlantic will get a boost as an upper
level disturbance, with a decent amount of energy associated with it will track overhead . This will pull the surface
trough south but not far enough to bring any precipitation across the region. It will manage to keep things breezy and
rather cloudy however.
A very spotty rain or snow shower will be possible. After any precipitation ends Friday morning, we will be working
toward a more springtime airmass. Friday, however, will be pretty dismal day still, with plenty of cloud cover, at
least through the mid afternoon, and temperatures around the same as Thursday thanks to the northerly flow.
Saturday however looks like a much better day, with high pressure sliding east into the region from the Great Lakes.
The sunshine is hopefully going to be making an appearance, although we may be slightly optimistic on how much we
get. Temperatures will get warmer, with most parts of the viewing area hitting the 50 degree mark.
Sunday and Monday will see the temperatures approaching 60 degrees as the winds will turn around to the south. This
shift will be the result of our high pressure moving to the east and a storm system moving in from the nation’s center.
Between the warmth and the approaching storm system we are looking at least some cloud cover both days. The
modeling is showing plenty of moisture in the upper levels leading to clouds both days, so maybe “some high clouds”
will be the better choice in wording for these days.
The front from this storm will finally pass us on Tuesday, bringing precipitation to the region (likely all rain thanks to the
abundant warmth in place). After the frontal passage, though, we will be dealing with cooler weather again, with
temperatures taking a nosedive back into unseasonably cool ranges.
