Afternoon Update: Raw, dreary Sunday continues

A coastal low pressure area, developing to our south and east along the cold front which passed our area on Saturday, has aided in the development of light to moderate rain and widespread showers throughout the area on this Sunday afternoon. In addition, the cool airmass combined with the clouds and rain is keeping temperatures in the 5’s (and even 40’s in some areas) with high temperatures only expected to touch into the mid 50’s in the warmest locations this afternoon. Later this evening, things will likely become even more raw as temperatures begin to fall and rain blossoms over the area in response to the surface low moving east off the Mid-Atlantic Coast and strengthening a bit. The rain is expected to continue through around midnight, before tapering off. Not all is clear behind this system, though, as after a break on Monday it appears showers will return to the forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rest of Today/Tonight/Yanks Cast Game 1: Showers likely, temperatures in the 50’s throughout the day. Falling temperatures by early evening with showers continuing through around midnight. Showers are expected to taper off after midnight as the storm begins to move northeast of the area. Temperatures remaining chilly. Yankees play ALDS Game 1 in Baltimore. Showers are likely there as well, ending around 8pm. The game should be played, but under very poor conditions.

Monday: Partly cloudy with a break between atmospheric disturbances. Temperatures running a little warmer than Sunday, into the lower to possibly mid 60’s in isolated locations. Clouds increase by evening with another system approaching from the south and west. Showers will begin over southern areas by mid-evening.

Monday Night: Showers likely as a low pressure system passes offshore. Another raw evening with temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s and northeast winds around 10 miles per hour. Rain could be steady/moderate for a period of time, especially near the coast. Sweatshirt weather to say the very least — umbrellas are a good idea as well.

Tuesday: Starts off poor with showers, clouds, and raw weather once again. The system begins to pull away by afternoon, however, so although scattered showers could continue the general weather will improve. Could see a late-day high near 60 in some isolated locations, but it will generally remain in the 50’s once again. Yankees play ALDS Game 2 in Baltimore (hopefully up in the series 1-0 by this point). Scattered showers, but the system affecting our area will be off to the Northeast of Baltimore by game time. Expect this game to be played without many issues.
