A taste of fall has arrived, so the countdown is on! A strong cold front moved through the area on Saturday afternoon which sparked off severe thunderstorm warnings for some counties and a tornado warning for Anne Arundel County.
In the wake of the cold front, Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic as a whole have been basking in plenty of sunshine, dry air and unseasonably cool temperatures. Morning lows have been in the mid to upper 40s in the mountains and low to mid 50s in central Maryland while the afternoon highs have been in the mid to upper 70s. The average high and low temp for this time of the year is 80 and 60 degrees.
Many Marylanders can’t wait for this time of the year when the humidity goes way down and the “Three Little Bears” Syndrome goes up….temperatures are not too hot and not too cold but they are just right!
The best news about this new found weather is that it is not a one hit wonder, it will be sticking around for a while. The forecast calls for the next chance for showers to be on Sunday. In the meantime, there is ample time to take advantage of this amazing weather.
