Weather Summary

The front to our south and east is causing considerable amounts of cloudiness, especially over southern Maryland into southeastern Virginia. Scattered showers and thundershowers are also occurring in parts of the Middle Atlantic states, but Baltimore and Washington are far enough to the northwest of the coastal front that our skies are mostly sunny. Meanwhile, a cold front will push across central Maryland on Wednesday and produce thunderstorms. In the wake of the cold frontal passage, pleasant weather is expected on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with sunshine and comfortable levels of humidity.
