Sunday turned out to be a gorgeous day for Baltimore, but the nice weather will end with the weekend.
After the day started with some clouds, abundant sunshine and comfortable temperatures in the 70s graced Baltimore Sunday afternoon.
Temperatures will remain mild into Monday, but sunglasses will be replaced with umbrellas.
As the storm system closing out the weekend on a windy and stormy note across the Midwest shifts eastward, clouds will block out the sun most of Monday across Baltimore and wet weather will steadily increase.
A shower or thunderstorm set to put a damper on the morning hours will be followed by steadier periods of rain and embedded thunderstorms for Monday afternoon.
Sunshine will quickly return for Tuesday, but the warmth will be gone. Temperatures will instead be on the other side of normal, rising to around 64 degrees. A high of 67 degrees is more common in mid-October.
