The Sun's recent reader poll ("What Maryland thinks," July 10) shows that a majority of those responding to this "not scientific" survey doubt that man made climate changes contributed to recent weather extremes. As one who holds an advanced degree in science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, I disagree. If you had polled only accredited scientists, I wager about 99 percent would have stated that global warming, in fact, has contributed to recent weather events. In the scientific community, this has become the accepted and undisputed position for years and is a position adopted by the National Academy of Sciences.

Some areas in the Baltimore region flooded overnight after a rainstorm, with tides expected to remain two and a half feet above normal throughout Saturday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood warning on Saturday through 4 p.m. for Anne Arundel and southern Baltimore counties. A coastal flood warning is also in effect through 2 p.m. for areas along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The warning means flooding is occurring or is expected to occur.

Bad weather forced No. 18 Mississippi to postpone its game against Arkansas that was scheduled for Saturday afternoon. The game will instead be played Sunday night in Oxford, Miss. A winter weather system was passing through the mid-South on Friday, bringing snow and ice and making it difficult for Arkansas to travel to Mississippi. The winter weather that shut down Oklahoma City's airport also grounded the Oklahoma and Oklahoma State teams. Oklahoma State is scheduled to play at Missouri and Oklahoma is to play at Nebraska on Saturday.

Soon after the 2013 season ended, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh admitted that he knew his offense was in trouble once tight end Dennis Pitta was injured and declared out for the season shortly into training camp. Pitta is out for the season again after he re-injured his hip Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, and the Ravens announced Wednesday that starting left tackle Eugene Monroe could be out for an extended period because of a knee injury. It's not a good situation for the Ravens, who play the Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers within the next six weeks.

The first day of the state track meet for public schools is scheduled for Monday at 11 a.m., at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex. This meet is for Class 1A and 2A schools, but if there is inclement weather, the MPSSAA website will have an announcement on it by 7 a.m.  If the meet is called off, it would be just moved back a few days, and the site would have that information as well. Class 3A and 4A schools are set to have their state meet on Tuesday at 4 p.m., and weather doesn't appear to be a problem there.  For those planning to go, the state meet always draws very big crowds, and doors will open an hour before the start each day, so arriving early would be helpful.

The temperature for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears is expected to be 38 degrees. That's perfect for the Ravens. In this decade, the Ravens are 8-0 at home when the game-time temperature dips below 40 degrees. Under coach John Harbaugh, the Ravens have dominated all three of these cold-weather games in Baltimore, outscoring their opponents 108-20 (that's an average score of 36-7). Their success in chilly conditions isn't happenstance. Harbaugh stresses beating the weather to his players.

Steve Awalt writes from Baltimore seeking weather data for a thunderstorm on the Magothy River May 27. "The worst conditions I have ever experienced. I later read where a boater was lost for a short time," he said. Emergency crews searched overnight for the boater whose day sailor capsized. He turned up safe ashore.

A cold front that moved through overnight was forecast to bring cooler weather Monday and through the week. Overnight lows were forecast in the 50s, and highs Monday are forecast in the mid-70s, about 10 degrees cooler than weekend temperatures. Partly cloudy to clear skies are forecast Monday, with blustery winds of 10-20 mph. Calm winds are forecast the rest of the week, but otherwise the weather is forecast to be the same -- with mostly clear skies and highs in the lower 70s and lows in the 50s, and possibly upper 40s in some areas.

The National Weather Service is adjusting weather warning boundaries in Howard, Baltimore and Harford counties to reflect geographic differences that can cause wide weather variations. The changes could help reduce false alarms and make advisories more precise, forecasters at the weather service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office wrote in a post on their website . That could be particularly useful for winter storms, when areas at higher elevations and further from urban heat islands can receive significantly higher amounts of snow and ice. On the new map, a line will extend across the three counties dividing them into northern and southern sections (the weather service already divides Baltimore County into northern and southern sections, but the boundary is changing)

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

There weren't any keepers yet, but the fish were definitely biting for Willie Edwards one day last week as he trolled along the edge of the Susquehanna Flats. The 72-year-old fisherman from North East said he'd caught "a lot of little rock," or striped bass. The Flats - a vast, grass-covered shoal at the mouth of the Susquehanna River - are a magnet for fish and the anglers who pursue them. But they're also a symbol to scientists of the Chesapeake Bay's resilience, and of its ability to rebound, if given a chance, from decades of pollution and periodic battering by storms.

The couple walked into Kent Island Jewelry first. She wore dark sunglasses, scrubs and a stethoscope draped around her neck. He was well-dressed and meticulously groomed. Trailing them was another man, in work clothes. He was looking for something special for his mother's wedding gift. "He ran me all over the store," shop owner Patricia Clowd recalled. Clowd and police now say the hunt for the perfect gift was a distraction, providing the dapper Robert Weathers an opportunity to grab a tray of diamonds from an unlocked case.
