More dry weather; NE winds bring minor flooding

Skin drying out? It's no wonder. We're looking at 26 percent relative humidity (and dropping) here at The Sun's weather station as high pressure continues to dominate our weather.

It's beautiful, of course. Sunny skies are forecast to continue here right through Saturday, and Sunday should still be mostly sunny even as moisture begins to work its way into the region from the southwest. High temperatures will remain 5 to 10 degrees above the norms for this time of year - in the low 60s, rising to the mid- to upper-60s by Sunday.

But there are a couple of flies in the soup. First are the persistent northeast winds, which have been pushing the Chesapeake's waters onto the Western Shore of Maryland. The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for the counties on Central Maryland's bay shore. High tides could run as much as two feet above predicted levels, causing some minor flooding.

HERE ARE THE TIMES OF THE NEXT HIGH TIDES
FOR A FEW LOCATIONS FROM NORTH TO SOUTH...
ON THE CHESAPEAKE BAY...

Ginkgo trees BaltimoreHAVRE DE GRACE...2:04 PM AND 2:51 AM...
BOWLEY BAR...11:43 AM AND 12:29 AM...
FORT MCHENRY BALTIMORE...10:51 AM AND 11:38 PM...
ANNAPOLIS U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY...9:21 AM AND 10:08 PM...
CHESAPEAKE BEACH...8:04 AM AND 8:51 PM...
SOLOMONS ISLAND...7:00 PM AND 7:13 AM...
POINT LOOKOUT...6:10 PM AND 6:23 AM...

Then there is the longer-range forecast, which calls for a cold front to approach from the west by late Sunday and stall to our west. Then, forecasters expect a low to form along the Gulf Coast and travel up the front, bringing us an 80 percent chance for rain by sometime on Tuesday.
