Monday November 6

This work week starts with warm temperatures and more daylight in the morning. Make the most of it. We are warmer now than the afternoons will be for the rest of the week! A cold front is moving in with rain on the way this morning, a little sooner than expected. Some thunder is possible as well, which should not be a surprise when you consider the transition of temperatures near 70ºF to near 50ºF for the rest of the week. In fact, Friday could stain the 40s and then be followed by lows in the 20s on Saturday morning. Here’s the quick break down in graphics.

Trivia: *Today is the last day of the year with sunlight in the 5 PM hour (for Baltimore)

I see the rain moving in a little faster this morning, so temps may have a hard time reaching 70ºF, but it will be close. It will also be the warmest day of the week as we really chill down tonight. Also, recess for the kids likely to be inside.
