COLDER TEMPERATURES BUILD INTO THE AREA OVERNIGHT SATURDAY — After the dust settles Saturday evening, colder air will start to arrive into Maryland. Subfreezing temperatures in some parts mean that we could see a couple area pick up a few flurries as the last trail of moisture shifts eastward. At that point, the system will be so close that winds will kick up and gust 20+ mph. Combine that with temperatures that will be in the low to mid 30s, that means that when folks are heading to church Sunday morning wind chills, or the temperature your body will experience, will be in the 20s!
I hope you haven't packed away your winter coat just yet-- As we go through the start of next week, it's going to feel like winter. The morning temps are going to hover near freezing for a few days, while afternoon highs struggle to get into the mid to upper 40s. Milder temperatures do come back into the forecast next Friday, but it will be coupled with some moisture-- so we'll likely see rain moving in late Friday.
I took a sneak peak at the weekend (because I know you all are making plans for the Ravens game Sunday) and so far it looks like the bulk of the rain will fall Saturday, but we'll fine tune that forecast over the next couple of days. In any case-- the outlook for folks who have been enjoying this warmer-than-average trend looks good... at least for the second week of January, as temperatures look to remain unseasonably warm.
