    Maryland was spared the effects of the recent nor'easter, unlike on Nov. 11, 2009, when the state was hit over several days with up to 8 inches of rain, high wind and waves. A quarter of the dune line in Ocean City was eaten away, with coastal flooding partially caused by high bay tides.

This weekend we will have much-needed sun and warmer temperatures. The normal high is 59, and the Baltimore area is forecast to reach 63 today and close to 70 on Sunday.
