February 29 2024

Thursday Morning Update 

After the storm yesterday, things have calmed down a bit as we settle back into a brief reminder of late winter weather. 

The high temperature was 66ºF in Baltimore yesterday. This included a wind gust of 51 mph and 0.28” rain.

Today, the winds will be lighter with gusts to 25 mph, but that comes with temperatures about 20 degrees cooler. 

The next weather event will bring rain Friday night into Saturday. This may last much of the day, then back to the mild and dry trend on Sunday. 

Morning Temperatures

These numbers are close to seasonal levels.


Morning Surface Weather

Strong winds have ushered in cooler air. 

There are Lake Effect Snow streamers across northern Pennsylvania and central New York. 

The next storm is organizing over the Southern Plains. There will be beneficial rain in Texas to hopefully slow down the wildfires. This is the system that will track our way to start the weekend.

7 Day Outlook

Most of the period remains with above-average temperatures. The other cool day will be with the rain on Saturday.

Farther out, there is still one more push of winter mid-month. I am focused on the 10th to 14th if you have any #FITF left.

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. #FITF
