April showers, sunshine, more showers
It's April as it should be, as the poets tell it, all sunshine and showers, birdies and flowers.
The forecast out of Sterling this morning calls for showers this afternoon as a small disturbance drifts past us along a stalled frontal boundary. But they won't get us very wet - just a few hundredths of an inch - and they won't last long.
Skies should start to clear overnight, with mostly sunny skies by Wednesday morning and through Thursday. Temperatures should be about right for April, too, in the low 60s Wednesday, climbing to the 70s on Thursday. It may even be a bit warm for this time of year in Baltimore, except near the bay, where a bay breeze will keep things chillier.
But then the showers return for Friday afternoon with the arrival of another low-pressure center. The weekend looks cooler again, with gradually clearing skies and temperatures seasonable again, in the 60s.
