Thursday Jan 12 – The winds are whipping up this morning and some rain has been passing through. The good news is that fog has been limited and some may rejoice with morning temperatures in the middle 50s. That is just our starting point. The fast moving air aloft will help usher in a warm day that will reach the mid to upper 60s this afternoon. There is a Full Moon today! So considering the warm air, good luck teachers!
That is it for the spring preview. A cold front will slide past our region and stall just to our south Friday night. Along that same front, the next push of precipitation will be snow and ice on Saturday. FITF – Not a major storm, but enough to be a nuisance and perhaps limit your travel.
This looks like mostly a Saturday event, what many teachers would call a waste on the weekend. For what it’s worth, I don’t want my son’s basketball game to be cancelled. He scored 4 points and the team won our last game. We want that to continue!
Below is the latest look and ‘suggestion’ for how much we could get.
High Temperatures Today
Note that surface winds will be 20 to 30 mph with some higher gust… The price tag of the warm air.
Warm Air Ahead Of Storm Tracking North
Next Up: Weekend Snow/Ice
The development of snow and ice will be along a stalled front. A strong High Pressure Center will be located to our north- resulting in cold air damming and locking the freezing temps in place for most in central and southern Maryland. The forecast highs may not reflect the actual temps with this event.
