Satellite loop suggests that much of the area will see more clouds than sun Thursday afternoon, so we have gone that direction with the forecast.
Happy Tuesday! Latest weather maps and short-term guidance suggests that most of the area will be rain-free this afternoon.
Most of the showers that were left over Friday morning have moved away and the early afternoon will be largely dry (except at the shore).
We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
The regional radar is showing a few pockets of heavy rain occurring in the Delmarva Region early Thursday, which could cause some minor flooding issues.
Warm again Tuesday before we get a dose of December reality.
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.
Well, so much for my idea of Thursday being dry.
What a beautiful day, weather-wise. Sunshine has filled the sky, combining with low humidity/dew points for a wonderful afternoon.
The overall feeling is that warming aloft should limit coverage of showers and thunderstorms to a rather small fraction of the area Friday and over the weekend. But there will continue to be plenty of moisture in the air so we would not want to totally rule out a thunderstorm on any given day.
Tuesday morning’s front left little in the way of rainfall. However, it did leave us in a much different air mass Tuesday afternoon.
The warm air is going to stick around as highs go back to near 70 degrees again Wednesday afternoon. However, there is a cold front that will be going through at the same time.
