Brian's exclusive forecast for Annapolis: Mostly sunny and very warm today with a high in the low to mid 80s. Mostly clear and mild overnight with a low in the lower 60s. On Friday, expect more sunshine than clouds with a high in the low to mid 80s. Saturday will feature clouds and sun with a high in the low to mid 80s. Looking ahead, Sunday's weather will feature clouds and sun and slightly cooler temperatures. However, readings will be above-average with a high in the low 80s.
Morning temperatures are in the upper 50s to lower 60s, about ten degrees cooler than where they should be for this time of year. High pressure will ensure that our weather remains quite warm as we reach the mid 80s again today under a mostly sunny sky. A weak cold front will approach the area from the west, but the front will have little impact on the area other than a few clouds on Friday. As the ridge of high pressure moves to our east this weekend, a more southerly flow around the high will bring an increase in both temperatures and humidity. Consequently, on Saturday and Sunday we will experience highs in the middle 80s with overnight lows only dropping into the lower 60s. Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes will drag a cold front through the region by Monday. There are indications that moisture will stream northward ahead of the front and into the Chesapeake area, providing much-needed rainfall.
