Weekend Warm-Up

The blast of arctic air that swept into the area with a few flurries and snow showers produced the coldest day we’ve had around here since the middle of last February. The high temperature Friday afternoon at BWI-Marshall was just 34F, the last time our high temperature was colder was back on February 19th when we only managed to reach 29F.

It will be another very cold night as high pressure builds over Maryland with clear skies and diminishing winds. Low temperatures are expected to reach the teens around central Maryland with some single digits to near zero in the western part of the state! But, as the upper level winds shift to a southwesterly direction, the surface high pressure cell will slide south of the state and a weekend warm-up will begin. Temperatures will get back close to normal (48F) on Saturday and then surge above normal on Sunday. With mild air returning, the next storm to approach the region will likely bring just rain around the middle of next week. After that, the longer range pattern would seem to favor near normal December weather taking us up to Christmas.
