November 19, 2023

Sunday Morning Update

Yesterday brought a high of 60ºF to Baltimore’s BWI as we return closer to normal mid-November weather. The colder trend will continue for a couple of days, then a welcome storm will arrive on Tuesday. The rain may be heavy, which is needed, but also may affect travel plans ahead of Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Week Storm

We are narrowing the expectations for this storm and the original solution does seem to be the most likely. Rain will arrive Tuesday, with the heaviest rain at night and into early Wednesday. This is most likely to be followed by dry and colder weather on Thanksgiving.


Morning Temperatures

Colder air is spreading in… Some areas may have similar temps in the afternoon.

Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure has brought us a clear sky and seasonal temperatures. A colder air mass will arrive tomorrow, just ahead of the developing storm. That will reach us Tuesday mostly with rain by Tuesday afternoon. There may be some wintry mix at the start… in the mountains. See the storm forecast below.

Holiday Storm Simulation

Tuesday Morning to Wednesday Evening

After all the flipping from the GFS Model, this solution seems most likely.

An all rain event for most. If there is any mixing at the start, it will be in the mountains. Then a slushy snow and mix Tuesday night from the Poconos to Central New York.

Snapshot Tuesday Afternoon

Rain will be developing by mid-day and expanding in the afternoon.

If there is any mix or snow at the start, it will be in the higher mountains from West Virginia through Western Maryland and Western Pennsylvania.

The latest run of the GFS Model (most consistent) pushes over 2 inches of rain for much of our region. This would help put a dent into our drought.

Thanksgiving Thursday

Despite what I showed from the GFS Model in my prior report, it is most likely that the storm will move away and leave us with a cold and dry day.

7 Day Forecast

I’ve included the potential for rain to last into Thanksgiving, but kept the odds at 60%. I would not promise that yet.  Our computer guidance is having trouble validating itself.

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 the 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 at predicting the future. All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky.  There has been no editor who can check my work when I need 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 available. 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.
