      Some light to moderate rain fell early Sunday morning, making today the 16th wet day this month.{} But since most of those{}days{}registered just a trace of moisture, our monthly tally is{}barely an{}inch, about 1/3 of our normal amount.{}

      Today{}could contribute a few more drops to the bucket as scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible.{} Under mostly cloudy skies, high temperatures today will be rather{}cool{}with highs in the mid 60s.

      Skies will begin clearing in the overnight hours as our weekend low pressure system moves east and a northerly flow arrives, heralding a big change in the weather.{} Tomorrow will be abundantly sunny and quite brisk with winds gusting to 30 mph; highs should be in the low to mid 60s.{}

      But as more Canadian air filters in from the northwest, the mercury will plummet into the 30s on Monday night.{} As a consequence, there are freeze warnings out for the far western areas of Maryland and the Allegheny Highlands.{} Tuesday will likely be the chilliest day of the week with daytime highs only in the upper 50s; "chilliest" is rather remarkable since the projected high is in fact the seasonal average!{}

      Temperatures will{}warm thereafter - as has been this March's wont - {}with highs in the mid 60s and{}low 70s for the latter part of the week.{}Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
