Monday November 15
We are in for another wild swing this week. This morning a strong cold front will be kicking up winds that may gust between 30 and 40 mph. That will reinforce the colder air and possibly kick up a snow flurry in the northern suburbs.
Mid week we will warm up and may still have one more day close to 70ºF, then abruptly turning colder again next weekend.
Morning Surface Weather
A strong cold front is allowing the core of this cold air mass to reach us today. Winds will be brisk, and gusty.
Some showers will develop, but light and scattered. This may include a snow flurry in the northern suburbs, with snow more pronounced in the high mountains of Garrett County.
The activity is scattered this morning but the emphasis in the mountains will remain during the day.
In central areas, there may be a brief shower that survives over the mountains with some flurries or sprinkles.
Any flakes will be brief and more likely in Washington, Frederick, Carroll, northern Baltimore Counties in Maryland, and southern PA.
What to wear?
This may be a day for gloves and hats, especially if you are sensitive to the chill. It may ‘feel’ like the lower 30s during the afternoon.

Behind the front and when the rain ends, this shift to NW winds will bring in the start of the cooling.
