A cloudy and damp afternoon will continue overnight as we expect plenty of clouds around and the threat of a lingering shower.
While the Autumnal Equinox is over a month away, you would think that the fall season arrived last night! High pressure from Canada ushered unseasonably cool and dry air into our neighborhood behind the cold front that passed through yesterday.
A very weak shortwave was just enough to enhance clouds from southern Pa. eastward to the mid-Atlantic coast earlier Saturday.
Have you been asking yourself “Where is the heat?” Believe it or not, we haven’t had a high temperature in the 90s in 17 days!
Does the weather have you in pain today? Can you feel it in your joints and bones when rain is on its way? Well, there may be some validity to that old wives’ tale due to the barometric pressure changes on your body.
Are you asking yourself, “Where are the hurricanes?” Because the tropics have been so quiet recently, I have had many viewers writing in and asking me this question. So far, this hurricane season has been relatively inactive. But we have to keep in mind that the Atlantic hurricane season for the Atlantic basin runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
This afternoon probably got you in the mood for football season, it certainly did for me! It was a gorgeous day with our high temps at BWI topping out at 83 degrees and low humidity.
Our official high temp today at BWI Marshall was 78 degrees. That’s well below our normal value of 86 degrees and we can thank extra cloud cover and the stratiform rainfall-drizzle for that!
Temperatures for our area will be several degrees below normal today, primarily because of considerable cloud cover and some showers that will occur, especially in the afternoon. Breezes from the south will direct increasingly humid air north along the East Coast, with dew points nearly climbing to 70 degrees.
A very slow moving cold front in the Ohio R. Valley is pushing showers and t-storms into our region. It has already made for a pretty soggy evening here in Charm City.
There is nothing much of note on radar near us as of 9 p.m. tonight, and that will probably hold true for the rest of the night. The activity well to our north and well to our southeast-southwest will gradually quiet down overnight as the atmosphere cools.
The weather remained hot and humid today as we topped out around 93 degrees at BWI with dew points near 70.
