Desert-Like Temperature Ranges

High pressure stretching up and down the eastern seaboard from Maine to Florida will continue to produce dry weather in the mid Atlantic states for a few more days. The sinking air under the high pressure system is quite dry, which combines with clear skies and light winds to produce desert-like temperature ranges and variations. For example, on Wednesday at BWI-Marshall, the temperature went from a morning low of 35 to an afternoon high of 67, a temperature range of 32 degrees. At Frederick, MD the affect was even greater, with a low of 28 and an afternoon high of 72…a 44 degree swing! Look for more wide ranging temperatures Thursday and Friday as this weather pattern is expected to hold through the work week.
