Much Needed Rain Coming
Frost Alerts

We go from one extreme to the next here in Central Maryland when it comes to the overall weather pattern this week. record breaking heat close to 100 degrees Wednesday before a 20-25 degree dive Thursday into Friday as high temperatures fall back to typical "Fall" like October levels. Our powerful cold front that rolled through the area Thursday left us with low humidity and breezy conditions today and a superb Saturday ahead.

Sweater weather to start Saturday morning with morning lows in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s. Temps slowly climb into the 50s by midday with highs topping out in the mid to upper 60s by days end. Clouds unfortunately increase during the overnight hours and into the day Sunday as a frontal boundary nears the area. Most locations look to remain dry with stiff southerly flow but west of the area over the mountains could see some showers. Better chances for rain arrive Monday as the front pulls through.

The front won't bring a lot of rain and shouldn't bust our current flash drought. Anything helps though to try and creep us out of this dusty pattern. Current model trends suggest anywhere between 0.1-0.5" of rain expected area wide which will slowly chip away at the deficit for the month of October.
