Because Central Maryland can’t win at snow this winter, our next storm has decided to run up to our west. A developing low-pressure system in the lower Mississippi Valley will charge up through the Ohio Valley and Appalachians Thursday into Saturday. Unfortunately for snow lovers around here, that puts us squarely on the warm side of the system.
With the warm flow aloft and cold air, we can expect a foggy morning with only limited sunshine at best. Rain showers move up from the south in the afternoon, and although not a steady rain, they’ll be around for the evening rush hour. Temperatures tomorrow are in a classic wedge situation so I wouldn’t expect them to get much beyond 40. Maybe not even breaking out of the 30s until late in the day. But as that system nears, the cold wedge will give way and we’ll have a warm overnight (for winter) with temperatures overnight tomorrow in the 50s, which will also set up a showery and warm day on Friday as the system passes.
