Temperature Tug-Of-War Continues

If you look back at our highs from the past six days, we've had a temperature tug-of-war between the 50s and 60s.  This trend continues into the 7-day forecast.

After 60s yesterday and 60s for most of us today, the 50s return tomorrow and Saturday.  Now, we do have an average high of 60 these days, so it makes sense that we keep going back and forth between the 50s and 60s.

Tonight, we'll have clear skies.  Our low drops to 44.  We'd actually go colder if we didn't have a weak cold front approaching.  We usually get warmer right before a cold front passes.  This front won't have any rain.  Instead, it will just bring some clouds to our skies tomorrow after sunrise, which happens at 7:34 A.M.  We'll turn mostly sunny by the afternoon as an area of high pressure approaches.  This keeps the skies clear Friday night, we really feel the effects of those clear skies then.  Look for a low of 36.

On Saturday, enjoy mostly sunny skies.  Then, the clouds increase Saturday night as another weak cold front approaches.  The clouds and milder airflow ahead of the front bumps our lows to the mid 40s.  Don't forget to turn back the clocks.  On Sunday, we'll get clouds and isolated showers from the weak front.  In the afternoon, we'll see some brief breaks of sun.  Don't expect too much sun because it sets close to 5:00 P.M. thanks to Standard Time.

Highs in the 60s come back for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

On Monday, we'll have clouds if you live in one of the counties that sit on the Maryland-Pennsylvania state line.  If you live north of 76, expect sunnier skies.  This all comes from an area of clouds and showers lurking just south of PA.  It will even bring a light shower to a spot or two south of 76.

Then, cue the sun for Tuesday through Thursday with highs near 70.
