Thursday Feb 23 – We start this morning with a Dense Fog Advisory in parts of central Maryland. This is issued when visibility is down below 1/4 mile, which can be dangerous for travel. The thickest fog seems to be in central Carroll and into Harford and Cecil County. The Advisory lasts through 8 AM west of the Bay, and 10 AM on the Eastern Shore. There is fog outside of the warming area, such as southern PA that may be thick in spots, if not widespread. Just allow for a slow commute.
Today the sun will break out and temps will jump into the low and middle 70s. This should fall short of the record of 78°F set in 1874. But a disturbance will set up a line of rain north and west of Baltimore. These areas highlighted in the slider below will show a slow moving, yet moderate line of rain that could be beneficial to some areas. Another push of rain could lead to thunderstorms Saturday afternoon as cold air rushes back in for the end of the weekend. Here’s a look at the maps.
