Rain this evening as the circulation around the storm system pulls warmer air north into the area.
Temperatures were certainly more indicative of summer than early October, with humidity to boot. The thermometer soared to 90 degrees in Washington D.C., the first 90 degree occurrence in October there since 2007.
We have some dry and cool conditions early Thursday.
There is a risk of thunderstorms with damaging winds and a few tornadoes from Wednesday night to Thursday night in parts of the mid-Atlantic and South.
It’s a big day at Orioles Park at Camden Yards–it’s the sixth annual Weather Day! More than 12,000 students from across the area are taking part in the event that gets bigger and bigger every year.
There is still some light snow currently falling in much of Delaware. The steady stuff should not get further west than that but there could be a few spotty rain or snow showers elsewhere.

What is going to make this upcoming storm rather unusual is that as the low pressure system located in the Carolinas Thursday morning begins to intensity in the afternoon, it will cause the precipitation throughout much of Maryland, Virginia and western North Carolina to become heavier and steadier.
The winter storm that brought a coating of snow to downtown and a couple of inches to the northern and western suburbs is departing off the Northeast Seaboard early this morning.
We have a couple of weak low pressure centers on the map Saturday morning, one west of the mountains in West Virginia and one down near the coast of the Carolinas, but dry air across the 95 corridor is dominating our forecast and limiting any accumulating precipitation.
Monday, we should start off fairly cloudy with patchy fog and even a touch of drizzle. But, with the winds in the afternoon mainly out of the southwest, some sunny breaks will allow for it to get even warmer than Sunday. The mercury should wind up in the mid 60s Monday afternoon, or about 10 degrees above the seasonal averages.
Dry weather is going to be common over the next few days as a high pressure system starts to build into the East. Of course, yesterday’s precipitation event that occurred fairly early consisted of both rain and wet snow.
