A mild, rainy day is in the forecast for the Baltimore area on Monday, as a low-pressure system that spawned blizzard conditions in the upper Midwest moves eastward, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is likely in the morning hours, tapering off by midday. Overnight lows are expected in the upper 30s to around 40, with afternoon highs around 50 degrees. North of the Mason-Dixon Line, there was a chance of freezing rain in the morning, but southerly winds were expected to keep temperatures warm enough for Maryland to avoid any ice. Breezes of 10-15 mph are expected during the day, increasing to 15-20 mph after the rain moves off the coast.

The stretch of foggy mornings this week continues Thursday, and it will on Friday, too. A weak high pressure system that has kept weather nice in the afternoons for the most part is keeping winds light. That, coupled with high dewpoints overnight, is making the fog build up as temperatures fall into the early morning hours, said Kevin Whitt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. Dewpoints at BWI Airport have virtually matched the temperature as it drops overnight, with both at 58 degrees as of 8 a.m. Visibility had been as short as 1/16 of a mile in some parts of Maryland and Virginia, but it grew to about a mile at BWI as of 9:30 a.m., Whitt said.

Highs are expected to top at least 70 degrees through Saturday, a good 5-10 degrees warmer than normal, but are no longer expected to threaten any records. Tuesday and Wednesday could be the warmest, with highs reaching the upper 70s or perhaps 80 degrees. Wednesday could come closest to setting a record for October warmth -- the mark for Oct. 24 is 82 degrees, set in 2001. While warm air from the south pushes up to heat the eastern third of the country, a high pressure system to our southeast is keeping skies mostly sunny and clear.

The beautiful weekend weather just couldn't last. While clear, sunny skies remain over New England, a low-pressure system spinning up from the Southeast has brought clouds over the mid-Atlantic. An area of high pressure that dominated from late last week through the weekend is now centered near Maine, slipping off the coast. The area had blocked clouds from moving into the region. "ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END...AND SO WE SAY FAREWELL TO THE FINE WX OF THE PAST FIVE DAYS," National Weather Service meteorologists wrote in a morning forecast discussion.
