Brian's exclusive forecast for Annapolis: Mostly cloudy this morning, then becoming mostly sunny and mild with a high in the mid 70s. Mostly clear tonight with a low in the mid 50s. Mostly sunny and pleasant on Friday with a high once again in the middle 70s. The outlook for the coming weekend calls for a mostly sunny sky with lows in the mid 50s and highs in the mid 70s.
An upper low is producing considerable cloudiness this morning, but high pressure will build over the region for the end of the week and into the weekend. Consequently, we will continue to experience mostly sunny and mild conditions. No rainfall is expected from Thursday through Sunday and winds will be rather light, making for ideal conditions for boating on Chesapeake Bay. As we move into early next week, a cold front will move from west to east across the bay. The front may produce some cloudiness and a few scattered showers, but will be dry for the most part. Behind the front, high pressure will build over the region and provide sunny and pleasant conditions into next week.
On the Maryland portion of Chesapeake Bay, no advisories are in effect today. On Thursday, winds will come out of the east at less than 10 knots with waves less than one foot. On Thursday night, winds will come out of the southeast at less than 10 knots with waves less than one foot. Marine weather information is provided only as a guide.
