Monday forecast: Rainy with highs around 50

A mild, rainy day is in the forecast for the Baltimore area on Monday, as a low-pressure system that spawned blizzard conditions in the upper Midwest moves eastward, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain is likely in the morning hours, tapering off by midday. Overnight lows are expected in the upper 30s to around 40, with afternoon highs around 50 degrees.

North of the Mason-Dixon Line, there was a chance of freezing rain in the morning, but southerly winds were expected to keep temperatures warm enough for Maryland to avoid any ice.

Breezes of 10-15 mph are expected during the day, increasing to 15-20 mph after the rain moves off the coast.

High pressure is expected to dominate late Monday through Tuesday, with sunny skies, breezy winds and highs in the upper 40s Tuesday.

Late Wednesday, precipitation possibly including rain, sleet and snow is expected. High pressure is expected for the end of the work week.
