Wednesday Morning Update
Here comes the heat and humidity. Temperatures will be into the 90s with the Heat Index pushing up near 100ºF today and tomorrow. Below is a quick look.
If you rely on my daily weather, I apologize for not posting yesterday. Time and logistics got the better of me. I want to keep posting during our Maryland Trek for a few reasons. For you. For our team planning. Also to keep awareness for our event, the kids we honor, and do all I can through my people (you) to raise money for our goal.
Please take a look at the recaps for Days 2 and 3 below. Special thanks to our media team Treasure and Brendan. Also our entire support team who make it possible for our trekkers to stay healthy and safe during our journey.
Maryland Trek Day 2 Recap
For Sophia from Cumberland to Hancock (41 miles)
Maryland Trek Day 3 Recap
For Cooper from Hancock to Frederick (51 miles)
Morning Surface Weather
The storm complex in the Great Lakes will drop south and bring us late clouds with a small chance of a later storm. The real energy will ignite on Thursday with the high heat and humidity and an eruption of strong to severe storms in the afternoon and evening.
NOTICE: Maryland Trek 9 Day 4 From Frederick through Sykesville (our halfway point) and ending in Elkridge by BWI. Total today of 57.7 miles all on bike to honor our fallen friends.
I will continue to post weather daily, but my attention will be shifting next week. I will NOT post reports on Facebook to allow our event to take priority. Please sign up for the newsletter to get my report in your email inbox.

*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.
