WEATHER BLOG: Cold Front Moving In
#mdwx: Active weather associated with a vigorous area of low pressure has raced across the mid-west and portions of the Great Lakes and will continue to do so throughout Sunday evening. Severe weather, including several tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds have already been reported across Illinois and adjacent areas causing a weather delay at Soldier Field where our Ravens are now playing. The good news is that other than a few isolated showers, the worst is over for most of Illinois.
Across Maryland, some sunshine managed to work into eastern parts of the area allowing temperatures to jump up into the 60s for many spots. Clouds will continue to thicken up ahead of the same potent cold front, which is poised to move into our neighborhood overnight. The weather associated with this system won’t be as severe for us as it was in the Midwest and Great Lakes, but it could produce some damaging wind gusts and bring a few embedded thunderstorms. The front/rain band will cross central and eastern Maryland between 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. early Monday morning (this time-frame represents the best opportunity for isolated damaging winds from this storm system).
Once the front clears the region to the east, skies will turn partly sunny Monday morning with a gusty westerly wind. Temps will pop up to their highs during the late morning or early afternoon hours before gradually falling through the 60s and into the upper 50s by late in the day as cold air rushes in. High pressure will build overhead for Tuesday and Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and seasonably cool temps.
