There are some stratocumulous clouds around the region right now and they will likely stick around for a while.
The highest temp so far at BWI this year has been 85 degrees.
Although temps are running about a degree higher than yesterday at this time, the presence of some clouds and a wind flow off the bay should hold temps in the low 80s.
A high pressure system, currently anchored over the Carolinas, will slowly advance offshore through tomorrow, but remain a significant influence to our weather.
The surface analysis shows a pressure trough from the eastern St. Lawrence Valley south into the Hudson River Valley and into New Jersey.
An upper low currently centered over Ontario will slowly creed eastward into northern New England and Atlantic Canada in the coming days which will keep us in a cool pattern through the weekend and even into early next week.
A warm front will lift across the region overnight bringing rainfall into the predawn hours on Monday.
Today is yet another fantastic day with temp already well above average for this time of year.
Cold air damming won out yesterday, but we have clearly broken free of that today with temperatures in the 60s and plenty of sunshine.
Although we will have a brief warm-up later this week, we just can’t seem to shake off winter!
Say it ain’t snow. Another round of snow expected for Baltimore on the first day of spring!
The latest radar loop and surface observations still indicate a bit of rain hanging on in the southernmost parts of the region with the rest of the area remaining dry.
