Flash Flood Watch In Effect
I'm Chief Meteorologist Vytas Reid,
A significant cold front will begin passing through Maryland today. Another batch of widespread showers and thunderstorms will cross the area this afternoon as the system slides in from the west. Highs will be in the muggy 80s again, and with potential heavy downpours possible, Flash Flood Watches are in effect midday Monday through early Tuesday. The front will pass through Monday night and early Tuesday, with an end to the downpours, but also a return to cooler weather. Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll chop about 20 degrees off our highs, leaving us only in the 60s in the wake of our front. Also, with the front hanging up just south and east of our area, expect more clouds and perhaps some showers with a cool easterly breeze lasting through at least the midweek. Thursday, it'll turn a little milder, but with moist winds out of the east still persisting, there won't be much decrease in cloud cover, nor shower chances, keeping us in the low 70s. We'll finally break out of the gloomy pattern Friday and into the weekend as we see a little more sunshine (but still a stray shower chance). Highs will then vault back up into the more-average 70s and 80s again.
