Moderate to heavy rain showers fell across the Baltimore and Washington areas today with many locations receiving 1/2" to more than one inch of rainfall. A period of heavier rain showers was followed by a brief lull during the afternoon before another period of moderate to heavy rain moved into the area. Additionally, dense fog developed in some areas. As we move through the overnight hours, temperatures will gradually fall into the 40s. Areas of fog may re-develop toward morning. Rain showers and fog may persist through much of the day on Sunday with cooler temperatures as highs only reach the upper 40s to around 50. Winds will begin to pick up on Sunday night and early Monday with some gusts over 30 miles per hour. After morning clouds and fog on Monday, high pressure will build over the Middle Atlantic states Monday afternoon through Wednesday, and a southerly flow will boost temperatures into the mid and perhaps upper 60s. Abundant sunshine is expected from Monday through Wednesday before another frontal system impacts the area with clouds and showers by next Thursday.
