Thursday November 2

This month began with temperatures slightly below average, but a front moving through today will surge warmer air back into our region. Temperatures over the next 5 days will reach the 70s, which is 10 to 15 degrees above average. Saturday will be cooler, then warm again through Monday ahead of the next storm. It will not be all quiet but the weekend showers appear to be most likely in the evenings and overnight. Behind next week’s storm, colder air could bring in some flurries or snow showers on the north side of Baltimore.  Here’s the break down:

Brief Weather Notes:

Friday Evening: Cold Front Showers after a highs in the mid 70s.

Saturday: Cooler With Highs near 60ºF

Saturday Night: Turn the clocks back 1 Hour

Sunday: Back to the 70s

Monday: Rain arrives ahead of next storm

Tuesday: Heavy Rain- Low Pressure passes directly over Maryland

Wednesday Night: Snow Showers might reach the suburbs north of Baltimore. Don’t expect any stickage or accumulation. I normally would not mention snow this far away, but the impact seems minimal, so it’s something for winter lovers to optimistically look forward too without other potential concerns.
