While you may not need your umbrellas this morning, make sure to keep it in your bag for tonight! As the outer limits of Dorian approach, some areas of Maryland have a chance of late afternoon showers. The sky will remain cloudy, with temperatures dropping into the mid 60s. We will continue to experience a northerly wind at a speed of 8 miles per hour.
