WEATHER BLOG: Another Chilly Night
Expect another chilly night with lows again dipping into the 30s. A frost advisory for northern Maryland goes into effect at 3 a.m. overnight and continues through 9 a.m. on Monday. If you have any crops or plants sensitive to chilly temps, I recommend covering them before temps begin to significantly drop.
A coastal area of low pressure will start to develop off the coast on Monday. Models are showing it’s taking a northeast track and moving out into the Atlantic. As of now, impacts for us will include a little extra cloud cover to start off the work-week. The coastal low will close off Monday night and Tuesday. Most of the precip with this system is expected to stay offshore, but a spotty sprinkle or two late Monday and late Tuesday is not out of the question.
A more measurable rainfall will head our way Wednesday night as an upper level trough and cold front move into the region. Whether or not we see sunshine on Thursday will depend directly on the timing of this system and how quickly it exits into the Atlantic. If it moves through quickly, we’ll see increasing sunshine on Thursday. If it moves through slowly, we may seem some residual showers and cloud cover on Thursday. I’m keeping the forecast optimistic for now, thinking we will see increasing sunshine through the day.
