WEATHER BLOG: Warming Up…Then A Bit Of Rain
Clouds associated with a coastal area of low pressure will continue to filter across the region Tuesday as an easterly component to our wind continues to kick in some Atlantic moisture. We’ll see a few breaks of sunshine before the sun sets, but it will be unseasonably cool and mostly dry with temps only reaching into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees for the afternoon high.
We’ll get come clearing overnight as low temps dip down into the low 40s for yet another chilly night. Be sure to grab the jacket if you are going to be headed out Tuesday night.
Clouds will continue to stick around on Wednesday, but most of the day will actually stay dry– and warm! High temps for Wednesday are forecast to reach into the mid 70s! Finally, a break from the cold.
Our next storm system will then move in from west to east–the same one that has caused significant flooding in the Midwest. No flooding is anticipated for us, but we will see impacts in the form of rain, a possible late evening thunderstorm and extra cloud cover. Precipitation estimates are forecast to be between 0.1-0.25 inches.
Timing-wise, here’s how things will play out Wednesday: rain will start to push in from west to east between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for western Maryland and then overspread the region between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Wednesday night. Winds will also pick up as this system approaches.
The good news is that this system is expected to move out fairly quick, leaving our Thursday plenty dry and setting us up for a beautiful day on Friday with sunshine returning and highs in the mid and upper 60s!
