Don’t get too comfortable without your winter coat and hat.
Temperatures reached a high of 65 degrees in the Baltimore area Saturday, but the warm weather that more closely resembles spring rather than early winter won’t last.
While not a record high for this time of year, Saturday’s warmth exceeds the normal temperature for the end of the December of 43 degrees. The all-time high of 69 degrees was recorded in 2015.
Temperatures were predicted to “cool off” through the rest of the month, according to the National Weather Service. And Sunday’s Ravens-Steelers matchup at M&T Bank Stadium will likely see rain.
High pressure will remain overhead through Saturday night, but temperatures were expected to drop off some in the evening. A warm front with rain was predicted to move into the area Sunday through most of the afternoon.
Rain was expected in Maryland’s southern and western areas Saturday evening, and increased moisture may result in some fog Sunday morning.
Starting Tuesday, temperatures will fall but remain above the normal. High pressure will build again in the Southeast, helping to deliver the winds and airmass more closely associated with the season. Expect to see highs generally in the 40s or upper 30s.
By Friday, increasing rain chances are expected over the Mid Atlantic as temperatures remain mild for early January. Dry, wet conditions look to persist into Friday night.
