The area of low pressure that was over us yesterday has now moved up into the northeastern U.S. It is causing a lot of wind, rain, and snow up there. Meanwhile, we are drying out.
We’ll have a long stretch of dry, mild, and windy conditions today. High pressure is building in from the west. But the entire day won’t be dry. There is a cold front off to our west that will move in later in the day. This will quickly sweep in during the early evening, and that will create a few scattered showers. Before the front arrives we’ll top off in the low-mid 60s this afternoon. I’d say it will be nice today, but the wind could be a nuisance at times. Winds will be out of the west at 10-20 mph with gusts up to 30 kph.
Some of the gusts will be over 30mph on the Eastern Shore. These winds could create some nuisance to minor tidal flooding on the Bay side of the Eastern Shore, but there shouldn’t be any big problems. By the evening we’ll have the cold front move into the region. This will create some isolated to scattered showers. They will be brief. Winds may gust up a little stronger out of the northwest as the front passes.
Overnight we’ll dry out. Low temps will drop to the 30s. Then tomorrow we’ll be a little cooler behind the front. High temps will be in the upper 50s. There will be a west/northwest breeze, but it won’t be as strong as today. Sunday gets even better. We’ll start a little chilly in the 30s, but we’ll warm up to the low 60s. We’ll be dry with lots of sun and less wind. We’ll warm to near 70 on Monday as the winds turn out of the southwest. We’ll be dry for most of the day. Then we’ll have a few showers later in the afternoon.
The front will move in Monday night. Rain showers will increase, and they may be heavy at times.. Then we’ll dry out by the morning. We’ll cool down big-time on Tuesday. High temps will drop to the upper 40s to near 50. We’ll be cool again on Wednesday, but we’ll probably warm up again by the end of the week. Stay tuned for updates.
