Friday October 13 2017
This morning is once again cool and damp. The wind from the east will continue to bring in Atlantic moisture, keeping us cloudy with drizzle and light rain showers at any point. Not much adjustment in the temperature this afternoon. So perhaps Friday the 13th is good for those that are tired of the late season heat. This will linger into Saturday with sone warming. Sunday is the pick of the weekend to be outside. Note that summer heat will return for a day, then will be replaced by another cool down back early next week. In the Atlantic, the eyes remain on the eye of Hurricane Ophelia that is still strong and moving in the direction of a landfall on Ireland. See more below

Drizzle and light rain will not show up well on radar, but the cold front arriving Sunday evening will be clearly marked. However the rain band will be weakening as it moves through the mountains.
Sunday Evening Set Up
The high temperatures will reach into the mid 80s. Here in the evening we can see the 70s replaced by 50s and 40s on the other side of that cold front.
The cool trough that arrives early next week will not last very long. However the cold will be building out west and eventually shift our way. I see the cold holding for us by the last week of October.
Here is a the text output from the GFS Model. I tried to block out the additional data to focus on the high temperatures (based at BWI in Baltimore)
