A wind advisory is in effect for Baltimore and surrounding counties until 6 p.m. Thursday.
The heavy rain and thunderstorms moved away Sunday, while the clouds and spotty showers hung tough in a few areas. That has kept our temperatures down again, but we still topped out at 60 degrees which again is above the average of 57 degrees.
Our area will see a bigger threat than usual for the spread of wildfires.
In case you didn’t notice, a cold front has definitely made its way through Maryland.
Temperatures that have been quite mild overnight (at least for the third week in October) are going to hold nearly steady for a while before they start to slowly fall this afternoon.
It will be turning much cooler Friday night behind that front with some clearing possible late. Winds out of the west and southwest Saturday could gust as high as 30 or 35 mph as somewhat cooler air spreads out across the region.
If you took even one step outside Friday, you felt it and certainly heard it. Howling, powerful winds ripped through Maryland, and they sure left behind a big mess.
The low pressure system that is located near the Ohio River early this morning will be tracking to the east. A warm front, now located north of the WJZ viewing area, will continue to press to the north. So, we can expect temperatures to soar well into the mid and upper-50s, with rain accompanied by a thunderstorm in a few spots.
Someone flipped the switch… but it appears the house wasn’t wired properly and now winter has
returned with a fury.
Rain and fog have been swept aside as the cold front crossed the state this morning. Now, gusty northwest winds have kicked in behind the front. A wind advisory is in effect for most of the state through 8 p.m. for gusts over 40 mph.
Wednesday turned partly sunny and windy after the rain (and freezing rain) ended fairly early.
The storm that only dealt Baltimore a “glancing blow” on Tuesday with some snow in the afternoon really ‘cranked itself up’ off the coast of New England Wednesday, bringing more than two feet of snow and hurricane-force wind gusts to parts of New England.
