WEATHER BLOG: Improving Forecast
A moist, easterly flow at the surface and an upper-level trough swinging through the northeast brought a soggy day to Maryland. If you had outdoor plans this Saturday, chances are that the weather got in the way. There is some good news though. Improvement is expected as we move into the overnight and tomorrow. Perhaps you can reschedule some of your plans for Sunday! High pressure will nose its way down from Quebec allowing for lower dew point air to move in overnight and decreasing clouds. High pressure will also control much of the forecast next week bringing us plenty of sunshine and pleasant conditions.
A tropical wave in the Atlantic developed into a tropical depression today as per the National Hurricane Center’s 5 p.m. update. Tropical Depression No. 4 is expected to slowly intensify over the next several days and is forecast to become Tropical Storm Cristobal as early as Sunday and perhaps Hurricane Cristobal as early as Tuesday. The forecast track still remains uncertain. Those of you who have vacation plans, property or family on the East Coast should closely monitor further forecasts.
