Weather Summary

Morning sunshine is giving way to cloudiness as we approach the noon hour in Baltimore and Washington. The area of high pressure that provided a clear, comfortable overnight and early morning is now being nudged by a warm front moving in from the southwest. This will produce cloudiness and scattered rain showers with temperatures in the 60s. There may be a few thundershowers this afternoon, although severe weather is not anticipated. A few scattered rain showers and thundershowers may persist into the evening hours. Morning lows on Thursday will only be in the lower to middle 60s, compared to the mid and upper 40s that we experienced this morning. Warmer air will overspread Baltimore and Washington later this week with widespread 70s, and even a few locations reaching 80 degrees. By Saturday, a cold front will approach the area from the west and produce more clouds and rain showers that may persist into early Sunday. At the moment it appears that Sunday will be the best day of the weekend, although a shower cannot be ruled out. Despite the clouds and showers, temperatures will be mild with highs in the 70s each day.
