While the week got off to a dry start Monday, moisture is already starting to take over what’s left of this dry air that was provided by a ridge of high pressure.
We have a gorgeous Memorial Day on tap!

Most of us will stay dry with partly sunny skies as we finish out Wednesday. A warm front will then filter in warmer air from the south before exiting the region early Friday.
Temperatures have been below average, but slowly moderating all week after Monday’s snow 36 degree day. Friday, we made it all the way up to 56 degrees. We are going to be closer to (or maybe a degree or two) above the average of 58 this weekend. However, there is another storm on the way.
We have everything from a big warmup to another cool down to ice, thunderstorms, rain, and snow on the agenda this week. First up is the chance for ice.
We are running about 6 degrees above average overall, which is substantial, and 15 of our 20 days have been above average. That is going to change with Monday’s cold front.
What is going to make this upcoming storm rather unusual is that as the low pressure system located in the Carolinas Thursday morning begins to intensity in the afternoon, it will cause the precipitation throughout much of Maryland, Virginia and western North Carolina to become heavier and steadier.
The New Year will start out with pretty uneventful weather. The southern front is going to clear us overnight, and the next couple of fronts will either pass off to our north or south.
The weather is going to calm down temporarily as we roll into 2013. Clouds have returned as a set of fronts approaches from the west.
Saturday’s kept intensifying as it moved through New England, translating into high winds for us. Gusts topped 50 mph in Frederick, Prince George’s, Washington and Baltimore Counties.
The winter storm that brought a coating of snow to downtown and a couple of inches to the northern and western suburbs is departing off the Northeast Seaboard early this morning.
