We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
Most temperatures were in the mid and upper 70s Thursday, but we should be in the lower and middle 80s this afternoon, except for those places which are located right along the Bay and at the Eastern Shore.
But, we are also going to be keeping a close eye on the regional radar mosaic late this afternoon and this evening. As the next cold front slowly begins to make its move towards the region Friday night and early Saturday morning, the likelihood of seeing showers and a couple of thunderstorms will be on the uptick.
As we had discussed earlier, the earliest we may see a shower or thunderstorm will be around 5:30 or 6 o’clock this afternoon, but the chances are much greater after 7 or 8 o’clock this evening and throughout the night.
The surface maps show this front will be ‘dragging its heels’ through the region during the day Saturday, so we are going to have to allow for a couple of showers and a heavier thunderstorm at virtually any time.
Despite the clouds and the rain threat, most temperatures should still manage to peak in the mid or upper 70s.
Mother’s Day should be the nicer of the two weekend days, even though it will be cooler. Early in the coming week, temperatures will be well below the seasonal averages for mid-May, and there should be a modest recovery taking place on Wednesday and even more on Thursday.
Have a good weekend!
