Brian's exclusive forecast for Baltimore, Annapolis, and northern Delmarva:
Overnight: Occasional mist or rain showers. Areas of fog possible. Low around 40.
Sunday: Becoming mostly sunny, breezy, and cooler with a high in the mid to upper 40s.
Sunday night: Mostly clear with a low in the lower 30s.
Monday: Mostly sunny with a high in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
The extended outlook calls for a chance of rain on Tuesday with a low in the mid 30s and a high in the upper 40s. Mostly cloudy on Wednesday with a chance of rain. The low will be in the mid 30s and the high will be in the lower 40s. Mostly sunny on Thursday with a low in the lower 30s and a high in the lower 40s.
A rainy day in the Middle Atlantic region produced 1 to 2 inches of rainfall along with thundershowers at some locations. Most of the stronger thunderstorms occurred over southeast Virginia and the lower Maryland Eastern Shore. Fog also reduced visibility at times throughout the area. After morning lows in the 30s, southerly winds ahead of the cold front enabled afternoon temperatures to reach the 50s and 60s. As the front moves to our east on Sunday, the winds will shift to the west and the sky will become mostly sunny. Temperatures will be cooler on Sunday, but still above seasonal averages with highs in the upper 40s. A gusty west wind will make it feel cooler at times. High pressure will ensure another pleasant January day on Monday with plenty of sunshine and highs around 50. Two areas of low pressure will bring rain to the bay region on Tuesday and Wednesday. At this time, both lows will track far enough inland to produce all rain for the Annapolis area. Precipitation may end as snow late Wednesday night before coming to an end. High pressure behind the second low will bring fresh cold air to the area by later next week with highs only around freezing and overnight low in the teens.
