March 11, 2013|By Scott Dance, The Baltimore Sun

Another day of springlike weather is forecast Monday in the Baltimore area, with highs around 60 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Clouds are expected to move in throughout the day, with mostly cloudy to overcast skies.

A coastal flood watch was in effect for southern Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County. Tides are expected to be 2-2.5 feet above normal, with a southeasterly breeze of 10-15 mph pushing water toward the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

A chance of showers arrives early Tuesday morning, though the warmth is forecast to stick around. Overnight lows Monday are expected in the mid-50s, rising to the mid-60s on Tuesday afternoon. Showers will be possible through the morning and into the early afternoon.

The air is expected to be colder behind the rain showers, with highs Wednesday around 50 degrees and in the mid- to upper-40s Thursday and Friday.

Saturday brought the young meteorological spring's first temperatures above 60 degrees, with a high of 62 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. Sunday reached 59 degrees at the airport.
