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
Morning Surface Weather
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.
3 PM Temperatures
With sunshine and a few high clouds, light winds will help temps get back to near 50ºF.

Notice the shift from the southerly flow in the afternoon to the turn from the Northwest in the evening.
Remaining mild with rain moving in.
Between Baltimore and the beaches temps will be near 60ºF, but behind that last line of showers there will be a quick drop to the 40s. The mountains get back to the 30s.

After the rain, it will be chilly for the Ravens game. Then mild again next week with rain ahead of the pattern change.
There is rumbling about next weekend turning wintry. I will have a look at that in my next report.

CONNECTION TO WINTER?
If you want a snowy winter, this is what you might want to look for in the rest of the tropical season. (You might be seeing a lot of commercial snow removal people out this Winter).
