Tuesday August 30 – We have a few more very warm days ahead of us just as the discussion of the impact on schools heats up in Maryland. Governor Hogan is expected to make an announcement on Wednesday in Ocean City of a mandate for Maryland schools to open after Labor Day next year. But around the corner now is a true taste of Fall that will arrive by the end of this week. The flip from highs in the 90s to 70s and lows in the 50s will make it feel like an Autumn preview as Labor Day weekend begins. But that cooling should only last a few days. It will time out just right to protect us from two tropical systems. See the forecast slider maps below.
Here is a quick look at the upper level maps showing the flip of air masses between this morning and the end of the week. The cold front that will mark that arrival does not look too active, but a chance of a thunderstorm on Thursday is possible.
