Monday Report

The next storm looks impressive on the weather map. Often in Spring, a cold front stalls in the Southern US, then a wave of Low Pressure will form along it and return north. That is the case today.  So after a cool, crisp, and beautiful start to the day, clouds are already increasing. The rain  is not far behind.

Here is a look at the set up and quick forecast. Heavy rain will fall in parts of our region with this storm through Tuesday. Then we keep an easterly wind holding clouds and showers around most of the work week. The holiday weekend looks much better.

It may actually be warmer in the morning than the afternoon…

A high late morning (after daybreak) is expected to be followed by cooler winds through the afternoon. Yes, many of us may spend the day in the 50s just a few days after the mid 90s.

 

Looking Ahead

Rain Animation: Monday Afternoon To Friday 

An east wind will keep us cool and damp with showers. They may not show well on this product, but they will be there.

This wet pattern should end with a strong cold front on Friday, which may include strong thunderstorms.

Cooler winds from the ocean plus clouds and periods of rain will keep us even cooler than I earlier suggested. It will be chilly for a couple of days.

Memorial Day Weekend does look much better.

*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.
