Monday March 8 2021

We had a chilly weekend, but this is the coldest morning of the stretch. Starting the work week with the second day in a row BWI reached the lower 20s. This is actually a good thing. It means High Pressure is overhead, so the clear sky and light wind allowed this drop on the thermometers.  We can only go up from here.

I feel like I need to repeat myself because it does’t seem real (and my wife didn’t believe it): The 70s will reach our region in just a few days!

Snapshot: Central Maryland

Computer guidance is pushing 70ºF on Thursday, but often we end up warmer earlier. So we may see that number on local thermometers on Wednesday.

Temperature Outlook 

This shows the odds of temperatures getting above or below average, not the actual temperatures. But it does suggest where it may be well above normal.

Looking Ahead:

Friday Afternoon to Monday Evening (GFS Model)

Cold Front Friday: Rain showers arrive with an end to this warm surge. I am not a fan of locking into modeling this far away, but I do believe we should watch that cold front next weekend. It may stall and keep showers around. Also, the cold temperatures behind the front might be underestimated.

There is even colder air that will try to drop in later in the weekend, which will feed into a developing storm. Sunday and Monday could bring a wintry mix then chilly rain.

*For any impact from winter precipitation in March, there needs to  heavy precipitation falling overnight or early morning. Otherwise, stickage is not likely.
