Brian's exclusive forecast for Annapolis: More clouds than sun today with a high in the upper 40s. Light and variable winds around 5 to 10. Mostly cloudy on Monday night with a low in the upper 30s. Light winds. Clouds and sun on Tuesday and Wednesday with a low each morning in the upper 30s and a high each day in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Looking ahead, Thursday will be mostly cloudy and mild with a high around 60. Friday will be cloudy with a good chance of rain and a high in the low 50s. Morning showers on Saturday will give way to a mostly cloudy sky and a high in the mid 40s. Sunday will be mostly sunny and colder with a high in the upper 30s.

The temperature at 7 a.m. is already 40 degrees here on the western shore near Annapolis, which is already warmer than some of our daytime highs last week. Most locations around the bay will stay above freezing during the overnight hours through the end of the week. Currently, the sky is mostly cloudy and we can expect little change for the balance of the day. A weak area of low pressure moving toward Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and is providing the region with varying amounts of cloudiness; however, no precipitation is expected from this system except over southeast Virginia where some light rain showers may fall. Later this week, a cold front will move southeast and impact the Middle Atlantic states with a good deal of cloudiness. Waves of low pressure riding along the slow-moving front may produce rain on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will be cooler with highs on Friday in the upper 40s to lower 50s and highs on Saturday in the lower to middle 40s. Colder air is expected to overspread the northern bay region by late in the weekend with highs only in the upper 30s on Sunday.

On the Maryland portion of Chesapeake Bay, there are no advisories in effect for today. Winds on Monday will come out of the north at 5 to 10 knots with waves one foot or less. Winds on Monday night will come out of the north at 5 to 10 knots with waves one foot or less. Winds on Tuesday will come out of the northwest at 5 to 10 knots with waves one foot or less. Boaters should always stay tuned to the latest forecasts and advisories from the National Weather Service.

The average high temperature for December 2 is 50 degrees and the average low is 32 degrees. The records at Baltimore on this date are 72 degrees in 1970 and 9 degrees in 1967.
