We are looking at a relatively mild day Thursday with some peeks of sunshine.
It was a very typical fall day outside. We topped out at the average of 66 degrees, after starting out in the 40s.
A tropical storm system is headed toward Maryland in the next couple of days. Tropical Storm Alberto formed just off the coast of South Carolina Saturday afternoon and is whipping up winds of up to 60 mph.
We have had clouds for days, but the rainfall deficit continues to grow because there hasn’t been much rain with the clouds.
Rounds of rain and thunderstorms have been skirting across southern Maryland over to the Eastern Shore today. They are running along the stalled front.
The comfortable weekend continues. The dewpoints/humidity remain low today, while temperatures are still running a few degrees below the average of 85 degrees.
Gorgeous sunshine gave way to some afternoon clouds and then a quick blast of showers and a few thunderstorms. That small batch of stormy weather came racing southeastward from PA, where it was much stronger.
