Weekend Forecast

Josh Larson @ 12:30 AM

We continue to be under the influence of a pesky cold-air damming situation, with northeasterly winds keeping abundant low-level moisture over the mid-Atlantic.

This setup will begin to break down by the second half of the day today, but expect low clouds and occasional drizzle to continue through midday. Unfortunately, it will be very difficult to scour out the clouds, so though the afternoon looks dry, expect continued abundant cloud cover; expect slightly milder temperatures near 60.

The weather should be considerably improved on Saturday, with dry conditions through the balance of the day, and some peaks of sunshine likely returning. It is probable, however, that skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy throughout much of the day. But temperatures will be more comfortable and creeping into the low 60's during the afternoon.

Sunday's forecast is a bit tricker. We look towards a cold front pushing towards the Eastern Seaboard from the center of the nation. But it appears that the front may be rather moisture-starved by the time it gets to DC. So I'm calling for a 50/50 chance of scattered showers, which hopefully will be short in duration if they fall. However, skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day. Expect milder temperatures, though, in the mid 60's -- more appropriate for this time of year.

The Baltimore Ravens play the Buffalo Bills in M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore Sunday at 1pm. Again, scattered showers cannot be ruled out. Expect mostly cloudy to overcast skies with temperatures in the mid to upper 50's at game time. Jason's score prediction is Ravens 17, Bills 14. (Overall season prediction record, 14-4)

If you can wait a few days longer, sunny, pleasant, and dry conditions look to dominate the weather Monday through at least Thursday of next week...
