TODAY: High pressure to our north and east brings in an easterly wind off the Atlantic. Expect patchy fog and drizzle this morning with mostly cloudy skies during the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to near 70.
TONIGHT: Clouds will stick around and some patchy fog is possible. Lows in the mid 50s.
SATURDAY: A cold front approaches from the west bringing clouds and a chance of a late day and evening shower. The Mummer's Parade looks mostly dry, but you may want to bring an umbrella with you.
SUNDAY: It's mostly cloudy with a stiff northeast breeze beginning to bring cooler air into the region. Some showers are possible with Sandy off the southeast coast, but the rain shouldn't be too heavy. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
MONDAY: It looks likely that Sandy gets pulled back into the east coast near enough to us to bring our area strong winds and heavy rainfall. The current "most likely" track puts the storm ashore Monday night or Tuesday morning just to our north into New Jersey or Southern New England as a Category 1 Hurricane or a strong Tropical Storm. There is still a wide range of possibilities of where Sandy could make landfall from Virginia to the New England coast. Accumulating snow is possible in Garrett County and the mountainous terrain of West Virginia as well. Stay tuned for more updates, but as of now look for cloudy, wet and windy conditions. It will also be chilly with highs in the upper 40s.
TUESDAY: Depending on the track of and timing of Sandy, we could be seeing heavy rain and wind. It will be cooler with a high of 43. Snow is possible in Western Maryland.
WEDNESDAY (Halloween): It looks cloudy and cool this year with highs only in the mid 40s.
THURSDAY: Still mostly cloudy and cool with highs in the upper 40s.
