Temperatures are about to warm up in Maryland as we head into the weekend. A ridge of high pressure will allow for our airflow to come from the south (FINALLY) bringing 60's to near 70 degree temperatures into the state.
Friday will start the trend as we hit the middle and upper 50s. By Saturday we are on our way up into the lower 60 s with mostly sunny skies; well on our way to near 70 by Sunday and Monday!
As we warm up, the west gets cold! A blast of cold air will move into Montana tomorrow bringing a blizzard to parts of the northern plains. This shot of cold air is poised to move back into our area by the middle of next week dropping our daytime high temperatures back into the 50s.
SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY: TEMPERATURES FROM AVERAGE. AVERAGE HIGH= 58-61°
BY WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATURES RETURN
SATURDAY'S TEMPERATURE YELLOW = 60S
SUNDAY'S TEMPERATURES UPPER 60'S LOWER 70'S (ORANGE = LOW 70S)

All-time record high temperatures were set at several location in south central Alaska Monday afternoon.
A potent area of low pressure will move along this rim and drop down the front side bringing a round of severe weather to Maryland Wednesday evening/night through Thursday afternoon (timing is still in question).
As the moisture from this tropical low moves north it will interact with a trough out to the west. This will increase Maryland's rain chances late Thursday into early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service and researchers from the University of Oklahoma continue to investigate the May 31st El Reno tornado that hit just west of Oklahoma City.
No big shocker here. Oklahoma shares the top of the list of states with the most tornadoes rated either F5 or EF5 since 1950.
