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.
Toward the coast it looks to stay cloudy all afternoon. Finally a nice day Friday before some big changes over the weekend.
The last of the short waves associated with the upper trough that has been ever so slowly inching toward the area will move across the area Wednesday afternoon. It will bring a good deal of clouds along with a couple of showers and a
thunderstorm. Mainly in areas east of I-95 there is potential for severe storms and flooding downpours Wednesday afternoon and early evening. Then the whole shebang finally moves away overnight and we get into a settled pattern for the better part of a couple of days.
As some very humid air continues to flow into the Eastern region early Thursday we’re going to be watching a cool front closely during the next 24-36 hours.
Think an air conditioner is the only way to keep your home cool? Think again.
Once some thunderstorms did manage to reach Baltimore last night, they packed quite a punch!
While heat waves like the one we’re currently sweltering in have impacts on land, it’s also being felt on the water.
Those working to get the power on for the last of the storm victims will endure blast furnace temperatures Friday.
