October 10 2017
One sign that the pattern is about to change is that we peaked out with a temperature record again. For the second day in a row, the low temperature recorded at Baltimore’s BWI was above the average high temperature and the warmest for the entire calendar day. Monday October 9 had a low of 72ºF which beat the record of 71ºF set in 1959. While we remain warm again today, we should be done with this type of record for a while.
Contrast the extreme last month: On September 2 Baltimore set the record for the coolest high temperature of 63ºF

Rainfall From Nate
It may seem like we didn’t get enough but radar estimates showed over 1 inch as expected north and west of Baltimore with less south and east
There is one boundary to our south, but we are still in the warm and sticky air. The chance of rain should stay south, perhaps a few showers in southern Maryland. We will get this back north with more rain on Wednesday
Afternoon High Temperatures
Mid 80s again around Baltimore and southward. Temps may stay in the 70s in the northern suburbs and southern PA.
The arrival of showers in the morning, but steady and moderate rain moves in around lunch time into the afternoon.
The chance of steady rain will be best Wednesday afternoon. The chance of lingering showers will remain Thursday as we cool down a lot this weekend. Highs will be in the 60s. Another cold front will bring us the next chance of rain on Monday.
