As promised… today turned out to be a very pleasant and comfortable day after a rather record breaking, chilly start.
An active day and night is in store for the region over the next 36 hours.
Today will be a hotter and more humid day across Maryland as a southwesterly wind pumps in the sticky air.
After topping out below average for the past few days… we will be returning to more summer-like weather during the upcoming week.
A cold front in the northwest which will eventually move towards the east during the middle of the week.

The weather has certainly been treating us ‘more kindly’ lately, and this overall trend is expected to continue for much of the next few days
We will have some night/overnight clouds move in which should break for Sun by lunch tomorrow. Other than that you are good to go.
A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for portions of western Maryland, including Allegany, Frederick and Washington counties.
We do see dewpoints gradually come up today, and with a more southerly wind flow will certainly be more uncomfortable for us with dewpoints around 70.
High pressure continues to slide eastward this afternoon and evening, with a blend of sun and clouds across the region allowing for a few spotty clouds and pop-up thunderstorms.
A ridge of high pressure is going to slide to the east, and it’ll eventually be consolidating off the coast on Sunday and Monday.
