Maryland Weather: Windy and colder today in Baltimore
Baltimore A departing system will leave behind low temperatures and stormy winds today.
Another wind advisory is in effect for the state through this afternoon. West wind speeds range from 20 to 30 miles per hour, reaching speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.
Coastal flooding is also possible in some areas through Saturday, especially along areas of the Gulf.
The sky is expected to return to partly cloudy this afternoon. Although many of us start the day in the 50s, cooler temperatures and blustery breezes keep it cool. Westerly winds will be active, with gusts reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour today. Daytime highs actually drop throughout the day with temperatures in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees by this evening.
It will still be breezy Saturday night with peak wind gusts near 20-25 mph. However, it is dry with partly cloudy skies. Lows overnight are below the freezing mark in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees. Make sure to dress up if you have any evening/late night plans.
Partly cloudy skies return to close out the weekend. We don’t seem to get much of a breeze with peak gusts approaching 30 mph. Although highs are in the low 40s, that won’t be the case with wind chills back in the 30s. There may also be a slight chance of snow showers or snow flurries in the afternoon.
Some of the coldest air we’ve seen so far this season is on the way. Temperatures will drop into the low 20s Sunday night with partly cloudy skies. Be sure to turn up the temperature and remember to check on pets, pipes and people.
Monday – MLK Day
There are a few additional clouds on Monday as we set our sights on the next potential storm system. We should stay dry, but cool on Monday with temperatures only rising into the 30s.
Increased chances of snow
The next weather maker looks to monitor the area and provide precipitation by Monday night into Tuesday morning. Models are starting to agree on light snow accumulation during this time. We definitely have one key ingredient, which is abundant cool air. As of now, light accumulations between a layer to one inch appear possible. Although light accumulation is expected, it’s still very exciting considering we haven’t seen any noticeable snow in Baltimore for some time.
