Big Warm Up With More Rain And Some Snow Mixing Back In

February 13 2018

The chill this morning may seem like a typical winter morning, but we have a big warm up on the way. Today will will be sunny, cold, and uneventful for most of us. But southern Maryland could see some showers from Waldorf to Easton to Salisbury. Then the warmer air surges in for Valentines Day and by Thursday temps will be approaching 70ºF. That will come with some rain and then an abrupt turn around with snow trying to mix back in on Saturday.

The outlook shows a trend back to cooler temps for the end of the month, then we can get another shot at winter in March.

High Temperatures Today

Sunshine for most of the state, with a small chance of afternoon showers in southern Maryland

Valentines Day

 

Thursday Warm Up!

Weekend Reversal

The outlook for Saturday shows this snow and rain mix. That is a reversal from the clear sky that appears to dominate in yesterday’s outlook. The is all about this front moving farther back north. Considering the trend we are in, this makes more sense.

Outlook

The jet stream does show the surge of warm air but I believe getting that push this early will lead to another arctic blast in March. Spring my appear to be here over the next two weeks, but there is still winter on the calendar.
