A change in the weather
As gorgeous as this Friday has been in Baltimore, you knew it couldn't last. Sure enough, there's a pretty impressive (on the radar) cold front approaching from the north and west, and forecasters insist we're in for some rain Friday night or early Saturday.
That may seem hard to believe given the beautiful sunshine and 80-plus temperatures we've enjoyed today. Our high here at Calvert and Centre streets was 84 degrees. The airport measured at least 83 degrees at last check. Nowhere near a record. It was 94 degrees here on this date just two years ago.
But that cold front will press through here after midnight tonight, and we can expect showers into the morning hours. We're already feeling the effects of the approaching front, with strong southerly winds during the day today.
Temperatures behind the front will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than we've seen today, with highs Saturday only near 70 degrees. Skies will clear off slowly, with partly sunny but even cooler weather for the rest of the holiday (for some of us) weekend. Enjoy.
