Tuesday March 31 2020

Thankfully the clouds cleared out on Monday, allowed temperatures to reach the mid and upper 60s. Today, clouds are rolling back in and we will be getting rain from both directions. A developing east wind will carry rain showers in from the EAST across southern PA and northern Maryland starting this morning.

From the west, a southern storm will bring in rain across the mountains that will become more widespread and steady across the southern half of our region.

Quarantine Cast:

If you want to get outside for a walk, this morning will be the best time today.  The weather will dry out Wednesday, but remain chilly.  Temps recover to near normal Friday and Saturday.  Warming begins Sunday and next week we get back to the 70s a few times.
