WEATHER BLOG: Winter Is Here

With calendar winter officially arriving at 12:11 p.m. Saturday, it’s only fitting that the temperatures challenge the record highs for the weekend. Saturday’s current standing record of 62 degrees (set back in 2011) and Sunday’s high of 70 degrees (set in 1889) could both fall. We are in a warm air pattern through the beginning of Christmas week that will settle across many eastern cities. The Southwest flow between the approaching system and high pressure building up from Florida will keep funneling in warm air.

The only downside is the potential for isolated showers Saturday afternoon and a steadier rain Sunday afternoon (just in time for Ravens football). There is nothing too substantial to worry about if the rain happens Saturday afternoon or evening. And while very mild overnight temps and higher dewpoints could promote a bit of fog forming by sunrise Sunday, the breeze appears to be strong enough to hinder it. Expect clouds and occasional sun with a high of 64. It will be mostly cloudy at night with an isolated shower…lows near 57 degrees. It will be mostly cloudy Sunday with showers and perhaps thunder. High and low of 71 /55.
