Brian's exclusive forecast for Annapolis: Clouds and sun today with seasonably warm temperatures. The high will be in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will come out of the south at 10 mph. A warm overnight is expected with a low of 69 degrees. Light winds. On Tuesday we can expect warm and humid conditions with scattered thundershowers. A high of 88 degrees is expected.
Today we're waking up to temperatures more reflective of a morning in late August. Current readings range from the upper 60s to around 70, which feels quite warm compared to the upper 50s of the past two mornings. We will see a good deal of sunshine today mixed with clouds from time to time. Additionally, there may be an isolated afternoon or early evening thundershower, but most locations will remain dry. It will feel more humid today due to a southerly flow of air circulating around high pressure to our south. A weak system will move into the area early Tuesday morning and will spark additional thundershowers throughout the day on Tuesday. This doesn't mean that we won't see the sun on Tuesday, but there will be greater instability in the atmosphere and therefore a greater chance of thundershowers. It will be warm and humid again on Tuesday with a morning low around 70 and highs in the upper 80s.
