Maryland Weather: Warmer weather is coming
BALTIMORE — Temperatures this morning are warmer than Monday but still very cold! We wake up in the upper 20s and low 30s.
Clouds will move in on Tuesday morning and continue throughout the day. A brief shower may occur in western Maryland, with a slight chance of rain in the south and east by tonight. This will be mostly rain, but there is a small chance of freezing rain in far western Maryland at the start of the event. This may impact travel early Wednesday morning.
Rainfall chances increase on Wednesday and into the night. Highs on Wednesday are expected to be in the upper to mid 40s.
More widespread wet weather is expected on Thursday. Rain will likely start in the morning and continue for much of the day. Rainfall totals are expected to range between a half-inch and an inch by Thursday night. Despite the humid weather, temperatures will reach the low 60s.
Humidity will also rise, with dew point temperatures in the 50s and 60s, as air from the Gulf of Mexico moves into the region. This combination of moisture, warmth and rain will cause snow to melt quickly, potentially causing localized flooding, especially in urban or poorly drained areas. We will monitor snowmelt and rain later this week to determine the extent of any flooding… if any.
A humid air mass may also lead to fog development from Thursday night into Friday morning. We’ll let you know if we think reduced visibility will be a problem.
A cold front will swing through on Friday, bringing more wet weather, at least for the first half of the day. The cold air does not arrive in time to hit our highs, and we will likely reach the mid 60s in the afternoon.
We should get a break from the wet weather on Saturday, with some sunshine emerging. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
Another low pressure system is expected to arrive on Sunday, bringing another round of increased rain chances in time for the AFC Championship game. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s. Plan your purple accordingly as you head out to cheer on our Ravens team!
Rain chances are increasing to start next week with highs in the 40s.
