A sunny and warm April day in Baltimore and Washington was experienced today with plenty of sunshine, occasional breezes, and high temperatures in the lower to middle 70s. A warm front will move northward through the region overnight, keeping thermometer readings mild with morning lows only in the 50s. A southerly flow around high pressure to our east will create breezy conditions at times on Sunday, but temperatures will be warm again with afternoon readings in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees. 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 cooler on Tuesday with highs only in the mid 60s. Even colder air will surge into the area on Tuesday night as readings fall into the 30s with rain showers continuing. 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 40s, about 20 degrees colder 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.
