A chilly and clear night ahead

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — TONIGHT WE’LL SEE CLEAR SKIES AND TEMPERATURES DIPPING DOWN INTO THE UPPER 30S TO LOWER AND MID-40S, AS HIGH-PRESSURE HOLDS STEADY ACROSS THE AREA. TRANQUIL WEATHER WILL CONTINUE ON TUESDAY, BUT AS THE HIGH MOVES OFFSHORE TUESDAY NIGHT, WE’LL SEE AN INCREASE IN CLOUDS. WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON A POWERFUL COLD FRONT WILL START TO MOVE INTO OUR BACKYARD AND AS A RESULT, EXPECT SOME BENEFICIAL RAINS FOR MID-WEEK. A HALF INCH OF RAIN, UP TO 1.5 INCHES OF RAIN ALONG THE I-95 CORRIDOR IS A POSSIBILITY WITH THIS FRONT. IN ADDITION TO THE RAIN, THERE MAY BE A FEW THUNDERSTORMS AROUND, BUT THEY WOULD BE CONFINED TO THE I-95 CORRIDOR DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON.
