A cold end to the weekend as the cold upper-level trough which blasted into the region late on Friday lingers for another day.
Certainly a big change to colder with the front that moved through early yesterday morning and kept temperatures in the 30s during the day yesterday.
The soaking rain that occurred Tuesday afternoon and early Tuesday night only lasted for about four or five hours in any given spot. However, it came down heavily for a while, and some wind gusts in the greater Baltimore area exceeded 30 mph. The strongest wind gusts in the region actually occurred in southern Connecticut, and a handful of them were in the 60-65 mph range. Rainfall totals in Maryland were mostly between 0.50 and 1.00″ — which pushes the BWI airport to 56.52 inches so far for the year to date.

A round of winter weather is headed to Maryland Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
