Considerable clouds and a gusty breeze from the northwest have made for a chilly early March-like day. Highs have fallen short of 50 for the most part. After a chilly a Friday night, a somewhat milder regime settles in for Saturday pushing temperatures about 5-10 degrees above today’s levels.
Through Tonight: An evening shower (between 5 and 10 p.m.) is not out of the question (20% chance), especially in the northern and western suburbs. Later at night, clouds decrease some with seasonably cold overnight lows which range from near 30 in the colder suburbs to the mid-to-upper 30s downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds with probably more sun in the morning and more clouds in the afternoon as a weak system passes by to our northwest. With winds from the west instead of the north and northwest, it’s milder, with highs reaching the upper 50s to low 60s.
Yesterday’s rainfall: Around the metro region - rainfall totals from generally ranged from 1.5-3” - which was consistent with what was forecast. The heaviest amounts occurred north and northeast of town in Howard and Baltimore counties, where 2-4 inches were recorded. The National Weather Service has a nice aggregation of regional totals.
