Serenity. Solitude. Tranquility. While they’re not words typically used to describe the barrier island that attracts 2 million people each summer, that’s what greets visitors to Assateague Island National Seashore in autumn.
This round of warm weather will come to a peak Wednesday. Temperatures will top out near 80 degrees, close to the record of 82 degrees. And even though we back off the 80s for the rest of the week, it will still remain warm and way above the average of 64 degrees.
We topped out right at the average of 65 degrees this afternoon. It was just another beautiful, crisp, fall day. The high pressure that brought us this beautiful air mass will slowly drift down to our southeast.
After a beautiful fall weekend, a big time warm-up is on the way.
Hello fall! Yesterday was the official start of fall, and Mother Nature delivered on cue. Brisk, cool air arrived Sunday with a breeze out of the northwest and highs struggling to get to 70 degrees.
Clouds will take over Wednesday and we may even get a little rain. But there’s a better chance for rain Wednesday night and Thursday as a new storm slowly drags over the state.
We will warm up again starting tomorrow. Expect highs in the mid 60s Sunday, then close to 70 Monday through Wednesday.
If you are putting together your to-do list for the October 15th weekend, we have some big festivals happening in the Baltimore area that are sure to please the athlete, the culture-geek, the foodie and everyone who loves autumn.
An annual rite of fall returns to Garrett County as the Autumn Glory festival opens for a five-day run.
After several warm days we’ll be getting a true taste of fall-like weather for the end of the week into the weekend. OK, I don’t think we’ll be setting any records, but we may want to get the fall/spring jacket ready for those morning commutes or getting the kids to the bus stop.
