At NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the Earth is the focus every day.
A coastal area of low pressure will develop along the East Coast Monday and provide us with increasing cloud cover by the evening, as well as the chance for an isolated sprinkle for areas along the Eastern Shore through Tuesday morning.
It will “feel like” it’s in the 30s in most places Thursday afternoon, even though the sun will be out.
The middle of March is known for its changing weather patterns, and even though Friday will probably end on a cloudy note, we will probably see a few hours of sunshine…Don’t get used to it!!
As we head toward the final days of winter, the chilly temperatures are trying to hold on.
Colder air is moving into Maryland, creating clouds and spotty showers as it arrives.
As we begin the month of March, a new season has begun on the meteorological calendar (to simplify record-keeping, the full calendar months of March, April and May are used. However, as we’ll probably find out here during the next 10 to 15 days, “astronomical winter” is still in control!!!
A moisture-starved cold front associated with the Great Lakes disturbance will cross the region this afternoon.
After a morning of nuisance snow and slick roadways, Thursday morning’s frozen precipitation has all but left the area.
A stalled front will linger over the Mid-Atlantic through Wednesday night. That will keep rounds of rain and drizzle here through then. At the same time, the colder air that was behind the front has wedged itself into Maryland.
Enjoy the sunshine and mild air Wednesday, because we have big changes on the way.
There has been some dense fog which has formed again in the mid-Atlantic region. While most of it will be located in outlying areas, we’ll need to address this early Friday. Temperatures, however, are expected to reach 80 Friday afternoon as whatever fog there is dissipates and the sun comes out in full force.
