While it took nearly the entire weekend for clouds to eventually begin to break up, Monday is looking like it will be nicer overall!
The day is getting off to a much more comfortable start than Tuesday, and we expect this nicer trend to continue for the balance of the day, and the rest of the workweek.
The weather will be dry for the Ravens’ playoff game on Sunday, with most temperatures in the mid 40s. Bottom line: the weather will be about as NICE AS YOU COULD ASK FOR for an outdoor event during the early stages of January.
High pressure that has moved out into the Atlantic will bring a milder southwesterly flow today and tomorrow. The southwesterly flow around the high is a dry one today, and although we do expect patchy mid and high level clouds at times, still a good deal of sunshine and a pretty nice day for this time of year.
There are no changes to our thinking regarding this weekend’s forecast. We’re still on track to see temperatures climbing well into the 70s on Saturday, and both Sunday and Monday (the observance of Columbus Day) will be even warmer with afternoon temperatures very close to 80.
The weather will be dry across the region for the next several days. This could stand alone as a headline, given the amount of rain we’ve had over the last 8-10 weeks. But what we’re also going to be experiencing over the next 3-5 days is an honest-to-goodness warm-up!
Another decent day is in store across the Northeast thanks to high pressure over New England, but for us in the Mid-Atlantic this high will mean a moist easterly flow and an abundance of low cloudiness to start the day.
