December 2 2022

Friday Morning Update 

Stop me if you have heard this from me before: We are in a pattern that is repeating every 3 days.  This part is the cold morning, then a sunny and mild afternoon. It will be followed by another rain event that will arrive in the morning, then end mid day, only to be followed by a final brief line of showers and gusty winds.  That will be our Saturday. Then colder on Sunday for the Ravens game… and we look to next week for more action and a change!

It does look like the winter pattern will kick in by next weekend, but before then temps may boost higher briefly in the middle of the week.


  • Today: Sunny and Mild
  • Tomorrow: Morning Rain, Afternoon Showers
  • Sunday: Sunny And Cooler
  • Next Week: Warming Before The Winter Pattern Kicks In

WE have a very cold morning, but High Pressure and a light wind shift will boost up a mild afternoon.

The next weather event does not look like much, but it will organize with rain developing that will reach us by Saturday morning.
