It’s wet but it’s warm out there Tuesday morning. As a storm moves our way, it has pushed a huge surge of unseasonably warm air up the East Coast. We are starting out the day in the mid 50s and will top out in the mid 60s. As a reminder, our average high is only 48 degrees right now.
Temperatures should reach the mid 50s Friday afternoon, and then will wind up mostly in the 30s Friday night.
While December may have some “tricks up its sleeve” in the long run, it certainly doesn’t look like there will be much eventful weather to talk about here over the next three or four days.
After an unusually warm Thanksgiving Weekend, today (Cyber Monday) and Tuesday will still be rather warm for late-November. In most cases, even despite some morning fog and clouds, afternoon temperatures will be running in the mid and upper 60s.
Enjoy the mild, dry conditions now because a new storm is on the way.
Monday will be fairly sunny, breezy and mild. Highs will be in the lower-70s, just like they were Sunday.
A large ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the weather across the Eastern Region. This has resulted in some unseasonably warm weather, which will continue today. Most temperatures should climb into the mid-80s this afternoon, except in some of the highest terrain.
Showers and thunderstorms appear to be slow to move into the area, so high temperatures were brought up a bit for this afternoon thanks to the extra sun. Showers and thunderstorms that were forecast today may take until the evening hours to reach some places, especially the eastern viewing area.
The regional radar mosaic early Thursday morning is showing a few weak echoes that are trying to creep into the area from the south and west.
We’re running about 4 degrees warmer than Thursday at the same time, so we are taking the high up past the century mark for the afternoon.
After tying the all-time May record of 98 degrees yesterday, we are on our way back up again today. At 2 p.m., it’s already 95 degrees outside. And we are still climbing. The record for today is 96 degrees. We will likely break that record and may even come close to yesterday’s 98 degrees. When you factor in the high dewpoints/humidity, it will feel more like the low 100s outside.
The stormy weather pattern is going to take over Maryland again this week. Unlike last week, it will be much warmer with more sunshine.
