Saturday Morning Update 

This is our 3rd time of this repeating cycle, and if you have caught onto the trend, that means morning rain ending close to lunchtime and gusty winds. Then a brief shower in the afternoon followed by colder air.

Below, I have the live radar widget to compare to the model simulations to see how well or poorly they are behaving. 

Sunday will be colder for outdoor plans and the roughly 70,000 people at the Ravens game.

Next week we shake the pattern up a little and look for a change on the horizon. 


  • Today: Morning Rain, Afternoon Line Of Showers
  • Sunday: Sunny And Cooler
  • Next Week: Warming Before The Winter Pattern Kicks In


Morning Temperatures

A mild start to the day. Temps will remain in the 50s to near 60ºF most of the day.

A break for the afternoon, then a line of showers with the actual cold front. See the timeline suggestion below.

Jet Stream:

After a mild midweek, we begin to break the pattern and turn colder next weekend. The middle of the month looks quite wintry with multiple chances of snow events.   

I will NOT show synoptic weather maps beyond 1 week because I do not trust them. Most likely after 7 days, what we see will not translate. These jet stream global patterns are more reliable, which is why I show them for longer trends.

7 Day Forecast

After the rain, it will be chilly for the Ravens game. Then mild again next week with rain ahead of the pattern change.
