Friday October 15
Are you enjoying this warm weather? On Thursday we finally broke the clouds and Baltimore hit 81ºF at BWI. Today, we might have some early fog and clouds, but sun this afternoon will boost temps a little higher. However, it may fall just short of the record 86ºF set in 1989 and other years.
Plans outside on Saturday will need to contend with a strong cold front. This will provide a brief line of intense rain, possibly severe, then turning sharply cooler. Timeline simulation below
Morning Surface Weather
High Pressure in control one more day. Some patchy early fog, but the sun and warmer winds will take over into the afternoon.
The cold front to the west will reach us by early Saturday afternoon and introduce the change to much cooler weather.

*This is the first phase. Much more expanded weather info will be added soon.
At this point, it looks like we may stay just below the record high.

Saturday Storm Line
The cold front will be brief, lasting less than 1 hour for most. But it will be intense, and possibly severe.
K-Index = 30+ is a good measure for thunderstorms. This is not a good indicator for severity. I will have an expanded look at this in my afternoon report.
