Sunday April 15 2018

As quick as the heat arrived, it is gone! Baltimore hit a high of 86ºF on Saturday and today’s temperatures will continue to drop. The high will officially be in the upper 60s from midnight, but much of the day, including this afternoon will be in the 40s.  Check out the 8 AM temperatures map above: The 40s have already moved into Harford and Cecil County… also in Ocean City. But Cumberland is till in the 60s. This backdoor front has shifted the winds from the east and taking that chilly Atlantic moisture to build in clouds and will develop rain. So as it cools off by you, rain will be developing as well. See the rain timelines below. One slider shows today’s rain, which will also show heavy storms this afternoon moving north. Then the strong line of storms from the west we carry in a separate slider through Monday morning.
