This Sunday provided a nice change to Central Maryland in comparison to yesterday. Partly cloudy skies, lower humidity and of course–rain free!
High pressure will continue to nose southward along the East Coast, giving us a
stretch of dry and stable weather for today.
A moist, easterly flow at the surface and an upper-level trough swinging through the northeast brought a soggy day to Maryland.
Current surface map shows a low pressure over western Pennsylvania with the back door cold front stretching through central VA down into northwest NC.
With high pressure in place, the region will remain dry this afternoon.
Here we are… it is August 18th and so far we have not had one 90° day this month!
Another surge of less humid air will move in briefly tonight and for the first part of tomorrow.
A cold front approaching the region from the northwest has helped to spread some clouds into parts of the area which is resulting in temperatures that are several degrees milder than last night.
TGIS! Hey if we can say TGIF, then TGIS certainly works!!
Despite this cool start, the day will turn out fairly sunny and nice, with most temperatures in the mid or upper 70s this afternoon.
Yesterday we talked about the deluge that occurred in the Baltimore area.
It has been a day of wild weather to say the least! We had the perfect set-up today for heavy rain with a very juicy air mass along with high dewpoints and p-wat values.
