BOB TURK: A lovely afternoon, a lot of sunshine. Mild temps, upper 60s, above normal. But right now, we're still at 63. But it's dry right now, the humidity only 37%. Winds South-Southeast at 9. They'll continue to bring in some moisture and also keep us in the mild air for a while. Barometer is just beginning to fall, 30.23 inches.

Right now around the state-- right now temperature wise, for the most part, everybody this afternoon got well above normal. If we can get to it. There you go. 67 in DC, 60 Annapolis, 54, cooler by the ocean. Because the ocean temperature is around 49 degrees right now. It takes a long time. That ocean is a big body of water to warm up. 57 in Rehoboth. 59 in Dover. 63 in Bel Air. It's still 70 in Frederick and 72 out in Cumberland and 68 down [INAUDIBLE].

It's 67/34 today. This morning, a lot of frost North and West. Some spots got down to 30 degrees. 59/38 is now the normal. It keeps coming up here in the last couple of days of March. 89, the record high, 1998. 21 in 1887. Back in the 1880's, the 1890's we had really cold days.

There was sunrise, 6:54, sets almost at 7:30. Yes, days are finally nice and long. Southeast breeze now. 22 Rock Hall, 17 Annapolis, 9 here, 16 DC. That'll continue bringing in increased moisture overnight tonight with cloud cover beginning to build overnight.

You can see some clouds-- a few high clouds but South of us. A batch rain already developing over Indiana, portions of Missouri and Illinois. A lot of rain out there. Unfortunately for the folks in Tennessee, which had 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 inches of rain the other week-- actually just three or four days ago. There's more rain out their way. So they have flash flood advisories for those folks. They may see another couple of inches of rain. Unfortunately, that's just going to make things worse for them.

For us, here comes that front, low pressure developing. It means rain on tap tomorrow. Once the front passes, cold air begins to drag its way into the region. Snow showers all across the Appalachians and the Alleghenies. To the North, portions of northern New York State, Vermont, New Hampshire could see 5 to 10 inches of snow. Believe it or not, that is no April Fool. But for us, maybe an inch of rain.

But look at the cold air back there-- in the teens. So that's moving in our direction. And meanwhile, it's 76 in Louisville. So we're still in the mild air for at least one day.

Look at the future cast. Here comes the rain sometime tomorrow afternoon. Solid rain by 1:00 or 2:00. 3:00, maybe even some thunder on the Eastern shore. And then things begin to clear up. And then one or two lingering showers early on Thursday, with snow showers out to the West.

Clouds increase, 51 degrees by morning, but South winds tomorrow. Periods of rain pretty much all day long, 66. Cold air Thursday, Friday. Warming up for the weekend, but really nice and sunny and still mild next week. Sunny to partly sunny skies. So a nice weekend here for Easter. Back to you.
