December 1 Meteorological Winter Starts With A Little Warming Trend

climate data

Wednesday December 1

As we turn the page to a new month, this marks the start of Meteorological Winter. Our seasons are in 3 full month blocks of time, for simplicity of record keeping. 

Here is a brief look at what we can expect with the weather this month. 

Key Weather Stats (for Baltimore)

Temps (Hi/Lo)

1st =   52ºF/33ºF

31st = 42ºF/26ºF


Sun Times

1st = Sunrise 7:07 AM; Sunset 4:43 PM

31st = Sunrise 7:26 AM; Sunset 4:53 PM


Winter Solstice (Astronomical Winter Begins)

December 21 at 10:58 AM

*Days slowly begin to get longer after this day.


Full Moon:

December 19 is the Cold Moon



Average = 2.5”

Most = 20.4” in 1966.  

2nd was 20.1” in 2009. This is debatable based on measuring for a big storm that was retroactively lowered. 



Morning Surface Weather

Another quick moving system will arrive later today. This will be on a track farther south, but with warmer air. We will expect rain by this evening with temps in the 40s.


Morning Temperatures

Not much freezing air to be found as the mild push is already underway. 



Afternoon Temperatures 


Radar Simulation:

Animation 5 PM Wed to 5 AM Thu

This product has been slow and a little limited with comparison to radar verification. So the rain may arrive in central Maryland close to sunset.

This will end before sunrise on Thursday.
