With a clear sky and virtually no wind early Thursday, temperatures are starting off in the 40s.
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.
Our average high is now up to 62 degrees. We not only went above average Monday, but soared through the 70s – topping out at 77 degrees.
Sunshine dominated both days, while highs jumped from 54 degrees Saturday to 68 degrees Sunday.
Temperatures will drop from the 60s Monday to 40s Tuesday.
We need to mention spotty sprinkles or showers again Thursday afternoon. Otherwise short-term looks pretty much OK.
We’re expecting some sunshine Friday across the Greater Baltimore Area, but there will also be a brisk northwest wind that will average 12-25 mph with some higher gusts.
The first week of March saw a drastic contrast in weather. From the mid-Atlantic to New England, rain, snow and winds caused many areas to react.
There will be high clouds and some mid clouds Sunday as high pressure slides to our east and some of the moisture coming out well in advance of the next storm system streaks northeastward.
A moisture-starved cold front associated with the Great Lakes disturbance will cross the region this afternoon.
We have a taste of winter weather headed our way.
The initial precipitation late Thursday night and first thing Friday can be a slippery mix of rain, snow and ice especially in some of the suburbs, but Friday during the day is mostly rain with temperatures well above freezing.
