Warm Today Then Backdoor Cold Front Crashes Sunday

Warm Today Then Backdoor Cold Front Crashes Sunday

Saturday April 14 2018

Do you want to hear about extreme weather? On this date in 1940, Baltimore picked up a record 0.3 inches of snow. One year later on the same date, the record high of 91ºF. The extreme conditions we have piled into a few days is why I am writing this morning. I was actually going to skip this report and just enjoy a weekend morning. But I need to show you this abrupt change in temperatures and rain on the way. So enjoy today because it will not last.

Back Door Cold Front

Our warm spell is going to come to a crashing halt overnight as a cold front will be sliding down from New England. Instead of our warm southwesterly winds, the air wil be coming from the east and northeast. The result: After reaching the mid 80s today, we will be stuck in the mid 40s most of Sunday with clouds and rain.

IF YOU SEE 70s FOR SUNDAY HIGH TEMP ON YOU APP, THAT WILL BE JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT

There still is a strong cold front expecting to reach us early Monday, but thanks to the colder day time and cold air in place, this may limit our severe storm potential. But Monday morning will be a rough ride.   Here check out these maps:

Temperatures

Afternoon High Temps

This is the NAM version of the afternoon and as I showed yesterday, we often end up warmer. Plan for mid to upper 80s again, but maybe just a notch or two lower than Friday.

Back Door Cold Front

This is the front that will shift our winds and bring in rain showers Sunday. We will begin to see it overnight. See the temps below.
