The extended forecast calls for sunshine on Monday with a low around 60 and a high around 80. Clouds and sun on Tuesday with a low in the lower 60s and a high in the lower 80s. Clouds and sun on Wednesday with a low in the mid 60s and a high in the mid 80s. Clouds and sun on Thursday with a low in the mid 60s and a high in the mid 80s.
A weak cold front will move from west to east across the bay region today, producing a few clouds and isolated rain showers. A broad area of high pressure will then build over central Maryland as we move into the late afternoon and evening hours. This high will be the main weather feature throughout the upcoming weekend and will result in plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. Lows on Saturday and Sunday will dip into the 50s with daytime highs in the mid 70s. As we move into next week, the high will move to our south and the flow of air will become warmer and more humid. This will increase the likelihood of afternoon thundershowers. A warm front is expected to advance northward by the middle of the week, to be followed by another cold front later in the week.
