Temperatures this Sunday afternoon are in the lower 80s in Baltimore, Washington, and Annapolis. Readings are a few degrees cooler right along the bay shore. A southerly flow around high pressure to our east will create breezy conditions at times today, but temperatures will be warm again with highs in the low to mid 80s. On Monday, more clouds will overspread the region as a cold front approaches the Middle Atlantic states from the west. Most of the rain should hold off until Monday night, but on Tuesday widespread showers and even a few thunderstorms can be expected on Tuesday into Tuesday night. In addition to the rainfall, temperatures will be significantly cooler on Tuesday with readings falling through the 50s. Even colder air will surge into the area on Tuesday night as readings fall into the 30s with rain showers ending around midnight. As the front clears the area on Wednesday, a cool northwest flow of air will move into the region. Highs on Wednesday may stay in the lower 50s, about fifteen degrees cooler than average for the middle of April. The mercury will return to more seasonal levels later next week as daytime highs rebound into the 50s to lower 60s.
