After we spent so much of yesterday in Texas, we’re going for a change of pace and headed to the Mid-Atlantic. The weather is always interesting up in that part of the world, so let’s see just how interesting it is today.
At 1054AM, ET, Atlantic City, the nearest reporting station to Ocean City, was reporting a temperature of 45 degrees with overcast skies. An area of low pressure sneaking out of the central Plains into the Great Lakes was drawing a low cloud deck off the Atlantic which promised to burn off as the day wears on.
That onshore flow was laden with warm, moist air, and as the initial round of clouds melts away, there is a chance that the instability of the advancing system coupled with the available moisture could touch off an isolated shower in the afternoon. The upper level pattern features two weak short waves, and the initial one is producing the activity in the Great Lakes right now, while the secondary wave is threatening a severe weather outbreak in Oklahoma this afternoon. Both will travel well northwest of the Jersey shore, and the Appalachians will intercept most of the moisture, but both promise some shower activity, with a light spot of rain on Monday with stronger thunderstorms on Tuesday with the second wave.

Unfortunately, Ocean City uses Atlantic City’s airport, and the arport is well inland from the coastal Ocean City, so we can’t officially verify this forecast. Here is a look at the clouds in the area. Hopefully they can burn off and make for a nicer afternoon than what seems on order.
