As time continues to tick away on September, it looks as if our chances for seeing any more measurable rain this month in the greater Baltimore area are getting quite slim.
Much of the Eastern region will see some warmer weather.
Temperatures are back on the uptick Saturday and a milder night ahead of the front that crosses the area from north to south Sunday midday.
Satellite loop suggests that much of the area will see more clouds than sun Thursday afternoon, so we have gone that direction with the forecast.
We may see a few peaks of sunshine by the afternoon, but overall the theme should be more clouds than sun.
There are some clouds in the area early Thursday, and the regional radar mosaic is also showing some rain in areas south and east of Baltimore.
We expect a hot and humid afternoon with a mixture of clouds and sunshine.
The visible satellite shows some high clouds streaming over the viewing area Thursday afternoon. The clouds are stemming from a storm soaking the Southeast in rain.
We have a couple of showers to contend with early — since there is still an upper-level low pressure system that is rotating/spinning its wheels over western portions of New York State and Pennsylvania.
Get used to the clouds. They are going to be here a while.
Radar is showing some bands of rain or showers moving from west to east across the region, so I thought a simple wording of “rain at times” would work out for the afternoon.
There is a front passing through the state. It has drawn moisture up from the southern storm, and is bringing a few showers with it. So there will be spotty showers Wednesday into the first half of night before that front gets out of here. Even with the front and the clouds that it’s bringing, the mild air continues. We are going to top out in the low 50s, then close to 50 again Thursday and Friday. That’s still about 10 degrees above average.
