Complaints? Stifle them
The WeatherBlog's Complaints Dept. is closed for the week. Sorry. The forecast calls for sunshine most of the week, with daytime highs in the 86 to 89 degree range, which is almost exactly "normal" for this time of year. Ditto for the overnight lows - in the upper 60s to low 70s through the weekend.
On Wednesday, we go over the Heat Hump for the year, the date when the 30-year daily average temperatures begin their long, slooow cooling trend. That will continue through Jan. 30, when the average high of 41 degrees once again turns upward on the long climb toward summer.
There is a chance for some thundershowers later in the week, and through the weekend. But it's not a huge risk, and besides, it's gotta rain every once in a while to get the dirt off my car.
While we're at it, I should take a paragraph here to thank Baltimore Magazine for citing MarylandWeather.com's WeatherBlog as Baltimore's "Best Blog" for 2006. See the current edition. My 93-year-old mother agrees, of course, although she's not altogether sure what a "blog" is.
