Sunday October 17
Is this the Fall you have been waiting for? That strong cold front responsible for the waterspout on the Chesapeake Bay yesterday shook up a lot more. After one of the top 5 warmest starts to October, we get a few days of temperatures below average. Then we will get back to the normal up and down cycle later this week.
One Day Temperature Swing
It was one thing that temps went from near 80ºF to the 60s with the front, here is the drop of temps from 7 AM Saturday to 7 AM Sunday.
Morning Surface Weather
The cold front is well off the coast, continuing to be pushed by strong NW winds. This has also put the Lake Effect weather pattern on display. That has develop rain showers and added clouds downwind.
We will get some of those clouds into the afternoon.
Afternoon Wind Forecast
Winds will push 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. This could play a role in the Ravens kicking and long passing game today.

Most of the week will be quiet. Winds will shift to being warming us again mid week, only to be followed by the next cold front late Thursday.
For now, this looks like a late day or evening FROPA (frontal passage) for us. The risk of rain will be late in the day or after dark.
