PM Update: A risk of showers and storms
Back to below-average temperatures this weekend
As has been fairly standard on warm days this spring, highs reaching the mid-80s (and even some upper 80s) ended up a little warmer than promised. No complaints here, especially given the low humidity! If you're a warmth monger, soak it up. We won't be seeing anything this mild in the foreseeable future. The good news is, after tonight's shower and storm risk passes, we'll still see a relatively nice -- if also cooler -- weekend on the weather front.
Through Tonight: The evening should be breezy and mild with scattered showers and storms. A few storms may produce gusty winds of 30 to 40 mph, with the strongest activity towards Baltimore. Additional showers and maybe a thunderstorm try to work into the area between around 10 p.m. and 2 a.m., but they should be diminishing as they move in. So, any rain that falls probably won't amount to much. Lows fall to the mid-50s to near 60.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Any rain from overnight should clear out before sunrise, and clouds will break as well, leading to a partly cloudy day. As far as springtime days go, it won't be a terrible one, but it will be much cooler as highs only rise to between 60 and 65. Winds from the northwest up to 20 mph, with higher gusts, will make it feel at least a bit chilly from time to time.
Warm March: Not just here, but all over. NOAA has announced that March 2010 finished as the warmest March on record globally since records began in 1880. The previous record was set in 2002, and this year's combined land and ocean surface reading surpassed that record by .03 degrees C.
