Sorry Frosty, Springtime Surges In

Welcome to Maryland where the weather could change through a matter of season in a matter of 2-3 days. Another round of snow squalls rolled through the area this morning into the mid-afternoon hours creating havoc for travelers across the region.

The squalls have since ended leaving gusty winds and bitter cold in their wake. Winds will lighten as high pressure takes the wheel and temperatures will continue to drop into the low 20s overnight. Wind chill factors will remain an issue with many locations feeling more like the low to mid teens early Thursday morning so have the warm layers ready to go.

One more chilly day Thursday with highs in the 30s before temperatures rebound drastically to a whole different season later on this week. Return flow behind high pressure will allow highs to climb back into the 50s Friday underneath a mix of sun and clouds. Overnight lows Friday will fall back into the mid to upper 40s with a slim chance of a shower. Better chances for rain arrive over the weekend with highs temperatures both days well into the 60s.

Some locations Saturday could touch 70 degrees pending on how much sunshine can poke through the tick clouds above. On and off rain showers remain in the forecast Saturday but most of the region may get away dry especially with a stiff southwesterly flow.

Those of us who are lucky enough to find tickets to the big Ravens game against the Titans at M&T Bank Stadium need to plan for a little rain. Kickoff at 8:15pm may feature a few light showers with temps around 60 degrees. Showers will be prevalent throughout the game but as of now it's not a total washout. Just have a purple Ravens jacket or poncho ready to go.

Heavy rain holds off for Ravens fan until early Sunday morning. High temperatures once again will be in the low 60s with additional rain shower activity expected through the afternoon. High pressure nudges back in Monday with highs around 50 before another warm up and more rain chances by the middle of next week.
