The record for Oct. 2 is 89 degrees, set back in 1986. We will be creeping very close to that as we head into the afternoon with highs forecast in the mid-80s.
With high pressure we should expect breaks in clouds Friday afternoon and winds to pick up Saturday. Sunday may have clouds but also sunshine.
The pleasant weather with ample sunshine and low humidity will yield to increased humidity and higher chances for thunderstorms this week.
The most prolonged stretch of #hot and #humid #weather this summer is upon us.
With a clear sky and virtually no wind early Thursday, temperatures are starting off in the 40s.
Took the high to 53 Thursday, otherwise forecast from earlier looks good. With thicker clouds and some rain coming in Friday it should be a tad cooler than Thursday.
Clouds should manage to dim the sun at times around here Wednesday. That plume of moisture in the mid and upper levels will eventually be pushing off shore early Wednesday night, and the sky should become mostly clear late Wednesday night.
As a high pressure system builds across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast, some dry and chillier air will be spreading out across the area during the day and night.
The weather pattern is still expected to be very kind to us over the next few days.
The next few days are expected to bring dry weather to the Mid-Atlantic States. Even though a front managed to push through Maryland Wednesday evening (and northwest winds between 8 and 10 p.m. gusted to between 20 and 30 mph), it didn’t bring any widespread clouds or showers.
A nice weather pattern– which we’ve been enjoying for much of the week– only looks like it’ll be every bit as pleasant Thursday and Friday.
On this somber day in U.S. history, the weather is eerily similar to that Tuesday morning in 2001.
