Today's front page, weather & traffic

Good morning, Baltimore! Here's what you need to know for your Wednesday.

Temperatures will top out at 50 today, and will fall back to 41 overnight. It'll be rainy and drizzly throughout the day and evening, which means you're most likely going to need a parapluie (pronounced paraplooeee) --- French for umbrella --- as well as a raincoat. Winds quite possibly will reach a blustery 25  mph during the day, so hold onto your hat!
