Based on satellite trends it will be rather cloudy at times Sunday morning before clouds break for sunshine in the afternoon.
The month of November got off to a mild and wild start Friday as a squall line of brief heavy rain and strong wind crossed the area in advance of a cold front. Despite the passage of that front, the temperature Saturday has been running above average with highs in a lot of spots topping out in the upper 60s. But things are about to change.
We have another day of above normal temperatures Saturday, then the coldest air so far this season will come
in for Sunday and Monday.
A weak cold front will push through the area Sunday which is very moisture starved and will only produce a wind shift out of the west and cloud cover.
A little below the normal high for this day (64 to be exact), but this last Saturday in October is bright and cool.
Radar shows scattered showers and drizzle across the Delmarva into Maryland. They are heaviest and most numerous across southern portions and will be lingering around through the morning hours.
A weak, broad surface low is currently positioned in the western Atlantic to the east of the Va./N.C. coast Saturday morning. That will provide us with occasional chances for light rain and/or drizzle throughout the day.
The band of rain and thunderstorms associated with a very potent cold front has pushed through the area bringing cooler, more seasonable temps and a decrease in humidity.
The weather map is slowly becoming less active. The last advisory was issued for Karen and overall, the moisture is not expected to be a major factor for our neighborhood as previously thought.
With a moist flow off the Atlantic, low stratus has settled in over the I-95 corridor from just north of Baltimore up into New England.
We topped out at 90 degrees Saturday at BWI. That’s nearly 20 degrees above the normal for this time of year which is around 70 degrees!
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.
