Morning Update: Unseasonable Warmth Makes Its Presence Known


The trend of warmer-than-normal temperatures in our region returns today as a warm front moves through the College Park area early this morning. This will send temperatures into the mid 70s by early afternoon, where they will stick around through the rest of the day. Mostly cloudy skies will be present at times, though cloud cover will vary throughout the day and no rain is expected. It will also be a bit breezy, with winds at 10-12 mph out of the southwest and shifting northwest by late afternoon. The high will be 76.

Just as soon as warm weather returns, a cold front will kick it out of here this evening, which should set up temperatures to be closer to normal fall-like temperatures over the next few days. Cloud cover will increase as the night goes on, but still no rain is expected. Winds will continue to be out of the northwest at 8-10 mph and the low temperature will be 50. 

Tomorrow (Friday): 

Tomorrow is shaping up to be an overall yucky day, with cooler temperatures and dreary weather. Light rain showers will start sometime in the morning and continue intermittently throughout the rest of the day. These showers should begin to move out by the late afternoon-evening timeframe. Winds will be out of the west at 7-9 mph. The high temperature will be 52. 

A Look Ahead:

Luckily, the sour weather is expected to move out of here just in time for the weekend, with Saturday and Sunday being days filled with sunshine and temperatures in the 50s. A strong ridge of high pressure settles into our region by Monday, which should allow for a fair weather pattern to continue well into early next week.
