Once again it was another day above average temperature wise in Baltimore. Highs temperatures made their way well into the 80s making it feel more like lake August compared to early October. Most locations remained dry with our friends out west in the Western Maryland mountains seeing some much needed rain.

A powerful cold frontal boundary is responsible for that rain and looks to march east Monday night into Tuesday bringing some of that rain to Baltimore as well as the I-95 corridor. Now we are not looking at a lot of rain with amounts around 0.25-0.50" in most locations.

Definitely not enough to put a dent in our moderate drought concerns but anything helps especially with the first 6 days of October starting out totally dry after coming of the second driest September in Baltimore weather history.

The best chances for rain look to be between now and 11am Tuesday morning. After the cold front passes through high pressure to our north and an area of low pressure to our east will wedge in the gloominess through much of Tuesday and even into the day Wednesday.

Rain chances will drop off during this time as well but are likely to remain based up the proximity of two area of low pressure that look to ride close to the coast in the coming days ahead. With that said winds could also remain gusty at time upward of 20 mph through midweek with 30-40 mph gusts as well as some bay/coastal flooding.

Cloud cover and rain shower activity clears out of the area late in the week. The early call for the Ravens vs. the Bengals looks good with a few clouds and highs in the low 60s. Stay tuned!!!
