I’m going to call the theme of the weather for the holiday weekend “improving.” We should be in great shape for the holiday itself.
Get ready for another busy hurricane season, maybe unusually wild, federal forecasters say.
Humidity & warmth will combine with “troughiness” aloft to contribute to our cloud clover as well as the chance for a shower or thundershower over the next couple of days. We aren’t looking at a washout, but any afternoon thunderstorms/thundershowers that move through will be slow-moving and could bring a few downpours.
The forecast for the rest of the weekend is not ideal, though we are definitely not looking at a washout. Our main problem is a relatively humid air-mass in place thanks to southeast flow allowing Atlantic moisture to penetrate inland.
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.
Highs Tuesday should top out in the low/mid 60s while a cool air mass is still in place.
I hope you didn’t pack the winter jacket away just yet because you will want to have it handy for the next couple of nights. Lows tonight will drop close to the record (36, set back in 1996) at BWI. All of this chilly air is being ushered in by northwest winds that followed behind a potent cold front that brought us severe weather over the weekend.
A strong line of thunderstorms passed through central Maryland earlier this evening, producing gusty winds, heavy rain, frequent cloud to ground lightning and even hail in some spots.
We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
There was a lull in activity earlier this morning as a dry slot of air wrapped its way into the circulation of the area of the pesky low pressure system over the mid-Atlantic.
A slow moving area of low pressure brought us a band of widespread rainfall Tuesday morning, and there is still more to come as we move throughout the day.
High pressure will start moving out of the region allowing an area of low pressure to slowly creep into the mid-Atlantic from the Mississippi River Valley tonight and Monday. Clouds will begin to increase ahead of this system overnight.
