Fog is dense across the area with visibility down to 1/4 mile recently at BWI.
An east to southeast flow off of the Atlantic is helping to bring an abundance of low level moisture which has caused some patchy drizzle and fog to develop.
While we don’t have to be concerned about any big storm, we do feel pretty strongly that many folks will experience their first snow flakes of the season late tonight or early tomorrow as a very potent cold front blasts through the mid-Atlantic.
The big story Sunday across the Northeast and parts of the mid-Atlantic will be the gusty winds.
There is high pressure centered in western Virginia and a low pressure area up near Lake Superior.
Based on satellite trends it will be rather cloudy at times Sunday morning before clouds break for sunshine in the afternoon.
We have another day of above normal temperatures Saturday, then the coldest air so far this season will come
in for Sunday and Monday.
A weak cold front will push through the area Sunday which is very moisture starved and will only produce a wind shift out of the west and cloud cover.
A little below the normal high for this day (64 to be exact), but this last Saturday in October is bright and cool.
The band of rain and thunderstorms associated with a very potent cold front has pushed through the area bringing cooler, more seasonable temps and a decrease in humidity.
With a moist flow off the Atlantic, low stratus has settled in over the I-95 corridor from just north of Baltimore up into New England.
We topped out at 90 degrees Saturday at BWI. That’s nearly 20 degrees above the normal for this time of year which is around 70 degrees!
