BALTIMORE (WJZ) – People in the Baltimore area experienced a chilly start to their Tuesday with temperatures as low as 16 degrees at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Temperatures peaked at 39 degrees in the late afternoon, about 7 degrees below normal.
But starting tomorrow and continuing into next week, colder-than-average temperatures should disappear.
The polar jet stream that has traveled far south for the past 40 days or so is finally retreating back into southern Canada. This change in long-term pattern means that the coldest air will be bottled north of Baltimore or possibly over the western or central plains.
Canadian Pacific or modified air will become more common in the region over the next 10 days or more. Tomorrow’s temperatures will stay in the lows through the mid-50s as winds start to shift more southwesterly over time.
On Thursday, high temperatures will peak in the middle or even above 60 years of age. Clouds will also increase as a cool front approaches from the northwest very late at night.
Showers will start to arrive Thursday night through Friday morning — about a third to a half inch of rain is expected. Cooler air will filter back into the area by Friday afternoon. However, it will not be as cold as it was at the beginning of the week.
