July 31 Clouding Up With Late Rain And The Maryland Trek Begins
July 31 2022
Sunday Morning Update
Today will bring something different. It is the end of the weekend which will feature increasing clouds and rain arriving later from the mountains.
This is also the start of Maryland Trek 9. I will be spending the next 7 days with my team crossing the state hiking and biking to honor kids telling their cancer stories AND raising money for our free programs at Just In Power Kids.
Each day I will be doing a modified weather report for our general area, but also a focus on the part of the route for our team.
Morning Surface Weather
High clouds will be mixing in this morning, then thicken up with the approach of the disturbance in the Ohio Valley. This will bring rain to the mountains and our trek team. We will continue in rain, but have safety measures for lighting to seek cover.
Satellite Loop 4 AM to 6AM
The diversity of Maryland is on display today. Temps are starting in the 50s in Garrett County while in the muggy 70s by the Bay and Beaches.
Late Afternoon or Evening Storms?
Looking for rain in the mountains during the afternoon. There could be some heavier showers and thunder mixed in.
This is expected to reach metro areas by evening and tonight.

*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. It 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.
