What a Summer in Baltimore. 52 days of 90 degrees or better (including Monday) and bone dry conditions with the month of September alone only measuring 0.15" which is nearly 2" below the average.
Tuesday brings on cooler conditions and our best chance for rain as a backdoor cold front slides through during the early morning hours. Clouds will start the day with one or two showers before skies clear mid afternoon. The rain is welcomed but will not be enough to cure abnormally dry conditions across portions of the state. We may have to wait until late next week for the pattern to change on that.
Even cooler air is expected behind this front come Wednesday and Thursday. Highs both days will be in the low to mid 70's with overnight lows around 50 degrees. Humidity will also be down putting the muggy meter out of order and making for good sleeping weather in the coming days as high pressure strengthens over northern New England.
This same backdoor cold front will also provide a hand in pushing Humberto well out to sea from the United States. As the storm pulls away though it is expected to strengthen over the open waters of the Atlantic leading to indirect effects of moderate rip currents at the coast.
The heat returns for the weekend as the high slides east. High temperatures will be back near 90 degrees Sunday and Monday with limited rain chances once again. This spells concerns as Maryland heads into Fall wildfire season. Long range trends continue to show above average temps and dry to normal precipitation.
For now if you like the sun this forecast is for you. Complete comfort, sunglasses everyday, and a little sunblock for safety. Enjoy!!
