Monday October 16
After a weekend with temps in the 70s, a little bit of rain marks the cool down on this Monday. The rain will slip south and mostly be a morning event, except for Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Then much cooler air will work with the clearing. Tonight may be the chance of frost to local inland suburbs as lows will drop in the 30s. Baltimore and closer to the Bay should be protected and a little milder. Then we get another warm up during the week. Ophelia is also making landfall on Ireland this morning. More on that below.
