Brian's exclusive forecast for Annapolis: Cloudy with mist and light showers overnight. The low will be in the upper 50s. Light northeast winds around 10. Cloudy with morning fog and mist on Monday, then partly sunny later in the afternoon with a high in the upper 60s. Northeast wind around 10. Mostly clear Monday night with a low in the mid 50s. More sun than clouds on Tuesday with a high near 70. Light east winds. Mostly cloudy on Wednesday with a few showers and a high near 70.
A persistent coastal low that produced several inches of rain over the past three days will continue to impact the bay region with clouds, mist, and fog through Monday morning. Thereafter, the low will weaken and pull away from the region. Consequently, we can expect to see some sunshine by late Monday afternoon. Tuesday will be mostly sunny and pleasant with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. By Wednesday, a cold front will approach the bay from the west. This will bring more clouds to the region along with scattered showers, although partial sun is likely through Wednesday afternoon. Highs on Wednesday will reach the low 70s. In the wake of the frontal passage, the winds will shift to the northwest and sunshine will return on Thursday and Friday with lows in the upper 40s and highs in the upper 60s.
