Sunday May 21 – You can call this payback for the summer preview we had for 3 days as temperatures will remain well below normal into this week. Baltimore officially hit 70ºF but most of the day was spent in the 60s.  Today will stay in the mid 60s to near 70ºF, much lower than the 75ºF ‘normal’ high for this date.  A very active weather pattern is setting up as a trough in the atmosphere will keep the cool pocket of air overhead along with rain and potential storms most of this week. That will keep us on edge for outdoor plans. I consult for Johns Hopkins University and will be hoping to squeeze in a lot of their graduation events. There is also the Blue Angles show for the US Naval Academy grads in Annapolis. The good news is that Wednesday might be our best day.

Rain Timeline

A few impulses will track through the Mid Atlantic. I caution the exact track as some prior systems have trended north of the initial forecast. That could take some of the heavier bands into more of our region.
