The short term forecast is a distinct reminder that the season is poised to change. The other reminder, set your clock ahead one hour before you go to bed tonight…we Spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time this weekend.
Finally we have a mild Saturday and Sunday in store.
We will start Sunday with some sun, then clouds will thicken toward the afternoon.
A mostly sunny and breezy day with mild temperatures.
Expect a day with more clouds than sun with temperatures 10-15 degrees below average. Such has been the trend this month, as Baltimore currently sits at a -3.4 F temperature departure from normal.
Models show a disturbance moving through the Southeast U.S. and the strongest winds west of the system.
Currently mostly cloudy and chilly conditions prevail as a weak zone of high pressure moves east of the Northeast Seaboard.
A glance at Saturday morning shows a broad area of high pressure, extending from the Ohio Valley eastward into southern New England.
Breezes from the south and southwest are directly milder air across the Northeast Seaboard early this morning with temperatures ranging from the upper 20s in the coldest spots to around 35 in the warmest places.
Looks like a lot of interesting and active weather coming up for at least the next week with a few storm systems to affect the area.
The same general jet stream pattern will persist across North America for much of the upcoming week, with a very pronounced ridge of high pressure along the West Coast extending into Alaska and a downstream trough extending from central Canada into the Eastern U.S.
We have been in the deep freeze the last several days, but we have had some “warming” with temperatures inching upward with a south to southwest breeze/wind at times coming in ahead of the cold front.
