Going forecast looks pretty much on target. We are currently dealing with a large area of clouds that has embedded small areas of showers and thunderstorms.
High pressure over the east coast continues to dominate the weather. This high pressure is projected to slide southward tonight and into tomorrow.
A well-defined wave that was located on the frontal boundary out near Chicago Thursday tracked east-southeastward during the past 24 hours and the models did not handle this feature very well.
We will allow for an isolated shower or thunderstorm overnight with most spots remaining rain-free as the bulk of the pre-frontal showers and thunderstorms are falling apart.
A cloudy and damp afternoon will continue overnight as we expect plenty of clouds around and the threat of a lingering shower.
While the Autumnal Equinox is over a month away, you would think that the fall season arrived last night! High pressure from Canada ushered unseasonably cool and dry air into our neighborhood behind the cold front that passed through yesterday.
A very weak shortwave was just enough to enhance clouds from southern Pa. eastward to the mid-Atlantic coast earlier Saturday.

This afternoon probably got you in the mood for football season, it certainly did for me! It was a gorgeous day with our high temps at BWI topping out at 83 degrees and low humidity.
Our official high temp today at BWI Marshall was 78 degrees. That’s well below our normal value of 86 degrees and we can thank extra cloud cover and the stratiform rainfall-drizzle for that!
