Today’s sunshine, while only partial, was a welcome change from almost two straight days of fog. And the drop in temperature was relatively gentle. We have more partly cloudy and tranquil weather as we reach the mid-point of our work week.

Through Tonight: We’ll have some cloud cover along with some clear patches. Overnight lows will be colder than recent nights, but not quite frigid with lows from the mid-to-upper 30s downtown to near 30 in the cooler suburbs. Light winds.

Wednesday: We’ll have some high clouds that will filter the sunshine at times and a wind from the north (at 5-10 mph). With a lack of true Arctic air in place, temperature will end up near normal, with highs in the upper 40s.

Baltimore nears record snowless streak: The Baltimore Sun’s weather blog reports Baltimore is within one week of having its longest period without at least a trace of snow. So far it has gone 280 days without snow - the second longest stretch. If it doesn’t snow in the next week, it will match and potentially pass the record of 287 snowless days set in 1948.
