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.
