BALTIMORE — A "Top 10" Tuesday in the books as high temperatures hit 80 degrees and dewpoint values sat comfortably in the 40s for much of the day. No more of that air you can wear at least for a few days before the humidity returns just in time for Father's Day. Before that all happens though we get a few comfortable days and only one chance of rain which looks to arrive early Thursday morning.

Wednesday starts off dry with temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s. Clouds quickly increase as the day rolls on with our next storms system moving in from the west and a weak peak of energy riding up the coast from North Carolina. Even with the clouds high temps climb toward 80 degrees with another day of low humidity expected.

Rain arrives during the overnight hours of Wednesday into early Thursday morning as the first piece of energy rolls in from the south. The first shot of rain looks to be fairly heavy especially east of I-95 and out on the Eastern Shore where a 0.25"-0.50"+ can be expected.

Rain shuts down by lunchtime before additional thunderstorms start to fire during the late afternoon and evening hours with the front sweeping through. Some of these storms could be strong to severe if the atmosphere is allowed to recuperate after the early morning rain.

All the rain is out for a fantastic Friday and temperatures that are once again below average. Highs will sit at or below 80 degrees with low humidity making for an excellent start to the Father's Day Weekend.

As it stands now Saturday remains dry and warm with high temperatures back in the mid to upper 80s. Humidity returns for good ole' Dad though as highs approach 90 degrees Sunday afternoon. With the humidity also comes the chance at showers and storms. Best chances for the wet weather right now look to be on Monday with a front stalling across the area keeping those chances going into the middle of next week.
