We got a break from the wind and clouds today, but that will change starting tomorrow. Clouds are already on the way back in tonight, and the first of 3 storms will arrive tomorrow.
A cold start to the day, but warmer air is moving this way.
There is a front about to move across the state Tuesday night. There is the slightest chance for a shower with the front as it moves through, but the little moisture it even has is breaking up as it moves east. There is just such dry air over us.
We are stuck between a strong high pressure over New England and a spinning low pressure just off the Carolina coast.
The dry, cool air has arrived. Sunshine will fill the day, but not help temperatures much. We are only rising to the upper 40s for highs – back below the average of 57 degrees. We are going to stay below that average right into next week.
We hit 66 degrees Sunday under sunny skies. That is 8 degrees above average (yes, it has dropped to 58 degrees). Monday will be another warm one before a much colder air mass takes over. We have about a 20 degree swing coming our way Wednesday, all courtesy of Tuesday’s cold front.
We topped out at 63 degrees today. That is the first day this month that our high went above average. In fact, this was the first time in 2 weeks our high was above average. If you like the warmth, make plans for tomorrow because temperatures are going even higher.
Isaac’s remnant center is still spinning to our west (over southern Indiana/northern Kentucky), but yesterday’s front continues to draw its moisture our way. That’s why we had the clouds, spotty rain, and drenching thunderstorms today.
The front stalled just south of the state is responsible for another round of showers and thunderstorms in southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore.
WJZ’s First Warning Weather Team has been studying our recent violent storm and reveals just how unusual and destructive it really was.
A big time warm started around the Mid-Atlantic today. Highs jumped into the 70s. However, a warm front moving through tonight will bring even warmer air our way for Sunday and Monday.
We have said it a LOT the last few months, but it’s going to be another warm one. Temperatures Wednesday morning are already running above average highs for this time of year, and they are only going up in the afternoon.
