Sunday October 31
Happy Halloween! There is a band of rain crossing Northern Maryland and Southern Pennsylvania. This will be a morning thing, then clearing through the afternoon for most of the region.
Trick-or-Treating weather looks great!
Week Ahead: Much cooler air on the way will bring most of us our first first, and possibly some snow in the mountains.
About the Northern Lights… We didn’t have a chance
I only made a post on Facebook about this, because I did not think we would have a chance to see them. Well, in addition to the clouds returning last night, the event was less than forecasted. We needed a K index of 7 or higher too have lights reach this far south. That did not occur.
Morning Surface Weather
Our old storm is still hanging around New England. That is helping this disturbance with early rain… But that will move out by afternoon.
The next cold front will bring much cooler weather for us.
Morning Radar Snapshot
Moderate rain is passing through southern PA. Hanover, York, and next Lancaster will have this for up to 2 hours.
The rain breaks into showers southward in Maryland. Expect some oof this across Carroll, Northern Baltimore, Harford, and Cecil Counties this morning. It should last an hour less.
Baltimore, Annapolis, Southern Maryland, and Delmarva your morning should be dry… However there might be some patchy fog already burning off in spots.
