Good Morning, Baltimore: Need to know for Wednesday

Good Morning, Baltimore! Here's what you need to know to start your Wednesday.

Here's what you need to know to start your day. 

 

WEATHER

Fog and drizzle will give way today to partly sunny skies. There is a 45 percent chance of precipitation today, so taking along a raincoat and a parapluie (French for umbrella) may not be a bad idea. Winds will be 7-14 mph out of the northwest. Brace yourself for the end of the week, when Old Man Winter rides into town on the heels of blustery winds and bringing temperatures in the high 20s and low 30s. Brrrr!
