Thursday September 28
It may be a week late, but cooler temperatures are arriving now and it will feel much more like the fall season through the weekend. A cold front is passing through this morning with no rain but a shift of winds that wil be gusting over 20 mph and has prompted wind restrictions on some area bridges. We will be in a transition over the net few days. Today we start with temperatures in the mid 70s, and after a brief drop, recover back to around the same spot this afternoon. You will notice the drop in humidity and the crisp feel later. This air mass is what is pushing Tropical Storm Maria farther away from the coast, but high waves will linger at Ocean City.
The local weather stations were showing many 70s at 6 AM, but look in western Maryland and PA… Some 50s are showing up and we will be that cool Friday morning.
The gusts will pick up just after sunrise. Most of the time we will feel 10 to 20 mph winds, but gusts close to 30 mph at times are possible.
The high temperatures are likely to have already been reached this morning…. So these numbers (which are close to average) will be a little cooler.
Tropical Storm Maria
Saying goodbye to that devastating storm… it should no longer pose a threat to land, just high waves in the Atlantic as the intensity should weaken.
The coolest temperatures will be this weekend. Saturday will have highs for many of our region in the 60s. The morning over the weekends will dip into the 40s (inland- away from the water)
Next week will warm back up… so we are not completely into autumn chill, but no longer summer heat.
