BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Drier air is moving in thanks to a moderate northwest wind Thursday.  So Wednesday’s clouds, rain and fog will be a thing of the past. there were just a few isolated spots with some fog Thursday morning as there was plenty of low-level moisture remaining from the rain we had recently.   The wind flow will allow downsloping to occur, and the skies will clear nicely and the strong april sun will warm us up as well.  The upper-level low that caused all the wet weather will be in the Canadian Maritimes and we will have downward motion in the atmosphere as we are in between systems.

Just a few clouds Thursday night with seasonable temperatures.  It should be plenty of sun Friday as high pressure parks over northern new england late in the day.  A slightly cooler airmass will be over the region and high temps should struggle to get into the lower 60s Friday.  We will see the skies become cloudy Friday night in advance of the next rain maker that will affect the region this weekend.

As mentioned, a storm system will affect us this weekend. Saturday morning should see rain breakout and become heavier and steadier throughout the day. There may even be a rumble of thunder or two.  This occurs as the primary low lifts to near ontario and redevelopment occurs along a triple point just to our south.  So on Saturday, we should be in a very familiar weather pattern, wet, cool and breezy.  A pretty dreary night should be in store for Saturday night.

This system is progressive as the high pressure shifts well to the east over the atlantic and this storm keeps on moving, meaning there is nothing to block it! That is good news as Sunday should be dry and much milder as the old april sun works its magic yet again.
