Wednesday Morning Report
I hope you can get out and enjoy the weather today. It will be as good as it gets mid spring. It might be a good time to get potted plants out of the house and plant seeds, with a good soaker on the way overnight.
Tomorrow should be dry after sunrise, then get set for a full surge of summer heat into the weekend!

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:
I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:
I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell. I didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region.
I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse.
All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.
There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline.
I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…
It’s part of my charm.
