Tuesday Morning Update

The good news at first glance is that the rain expected today looks less impressive. That is good news if you are not hurting for rain, however, I realize some would like to see more. Today will end up warmer than I thought as rain will be later and more likely farther south.

A chilly air mass will build in for a few days, which may very well include the last frost of the season… Inland and away from the water of course.

Then we will track the next chance for rain on Preakness Saturday.


Morning Surface Weather

After this little weather system tracks through tonight, it will be followed by chilly air from the north.

The rain looks less impressive on this model run. While I am keeping the chance of showers in the mix, the better chance will be closer to Annapolis and south.

Only spotty showers. This product can miss out on more activity, but this still looks less impressive than yesterday.

The core of the next chilly air mass will settle in at this time. This is when we will likely have temperatures drop into the mid and lower 30s for both inland areas to the west AND interior Delmarva.  This could be our final frost of the season.

Jet Stream: Tuesday to Saturday

Here we can see the colored air mass (blue) that will settle in and likely bring an inland frost Thursday morning. Then a little shortwave on Saturday is what will bring us the next chance for rain.

Wet Weekend?

Not entirely, however we will see showers on Saturday. As I mentioned yesterday, the timing has sped up and may arrive in the morning… still affecting Preakness. As of now, Sunday is looking dry.

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos, and occasional other glitches. I take responsibility for my mistakes, and even the computer glitches I may miss. 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 during my second year at Cornell University. It didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. One of my professors told me that I had made it that far without knowing, and to not let it be a crutch going forward. That was Mark Wysocki and he was absolutely correct! I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. I also can make mistakes in forecasting. No one is perfect predicting the future. All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.  There has been no editor that can check my work when I needed it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. Barbara Werner is a member of the web team that helps me maintain this site. She has taken it upon herself to edit typos, when she is able. That could be AFTER you read this. I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me… It’s part of my charm.
