Wind Advisories and Special Weather Statement For Sunday Morning Then Record Cold Day

Saturday Evening Update 

Did you get a weather alert or statement about the wind or wind chill? I’ve seen quite a few questions, which made me think this caused more confusion than was intended, so I wanted to help explain it for you. In addition to the strong winds, the afternoon will remain so cold, it may end up setting a new record for coldest November 20 day in Baltimore. 

A strong cold front will bring reinforcements to our cold air overnight. This will come with a burst of wind, that has prompted two advisories: Wind Advisory and Wind Chill Advisory. However, there was also Special Weather Statement that expanded to a much larger region, including central Maryland. I believe this is where the confusion set in.

Wind Gust Forecast

Peak Gusts through morning will reach 50 mph in the high mountains of western Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia along Skyline Drive. This is where the Wind and Wind Chill Advisories are located.

Most of central Maryland, Delmarva, and Southern Pennsylvania will likely reach 30 to 40 mph gusts.


Here is a look at the alert map, then the actual alert text below. Then we can take a look at the forecast.  


National Weather Service Alerts

The Special Statement was sent to all areas in the light tan colored counties, but the actual worst weather will be in the higher mountains of West Virginia and Virginia. Note the pink on the Bay is for a Small Craft Advisory… For anyone who really wanted or needed to boat.


Official Statement:

where very cold wind chills as low as 15 below zero are expected.

Wind Speed Animation 

Midnight to 1 PM

I chose this time frame to bring us up to the start of the Ravens Game

The front will bring strong winds before sunrise, then after a little lull there will be an increase of winds late morning to early afternoon… These winds may settle down later in the afternoon, which could be better for Justin Tucker. 


Sunday Morning


Teens in the mountains and 20s all the way to metro Baltimore. Southern Maryland and Delmarva will be near freezing.

Wind Chill

The highest elevation will have wind chills ranging from -5ºF around Deep Creek Lake to -10ºF in the higher mountains. 

Sunday Afternoon 

The RECORD COLDEST November 20 afternoon in Baltimore was 38ºF in 1984.

If this forecast of 35ºF for BWI holds, then a new record cold afternoon will be established for Baltimore. 

The Average High is 56ºF, so this is nearly 20 degrees below.


Sunday Afternoon Wind Chill

It will feel like the 20s, so if you are going to the game or have other outdoor plans, it will feel more like January. 

I will have a full report and Thanksgiving Weekend Storm outlook in my Sunday morning report. I aim to have that posted by 8 AM.
