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.
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.
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.
High pressure will control our weather through the weekend. So if you liked the weather Saturday, you will like it Sunday as well! Another stellar day of weather is on tap for us with temps in the mid 60s and abundant sunshine. Clouds will start to increase by the evening ahead of our next storm system.
We set a new daily high temperature for April 10th at BWI reaching 91 degrees. That was the hottest day of the month! Our total monthly precipitation weighed in at 2.2″, that is just under 1″ below normal for the month of April.
We had a gorgeous start to the day but clouds invaded our airspace quick! The metro area became overcast by around 1 p.m. So we can say “so long” to high pressure for the time being as a trough of low pressure will be starting us off on an unsettled weather pattern for the next couple of days.
We will be clouding-up this afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front and area of low pressure. Winds will be on the increase out ahead of the system as well. Before it gets here, high temps will reach well into the 70s providing us with a very pleasant day!
Expect another chilly night with lows again dipping into the 30s.
Don’t put the winter jackets away just yet! Temps have turned much colder for this time of year. Just when we were starting to get used to warmer, “summer-like” weather, things have changed again.
