Screen Shot2015-10-09 05_51_45It was clear enough this morning to view the conjunction of the moon and a few planets in the eastern sky. The arrival of clouds will signal the next cold front, but the timing could determine how warm and how strong the storms will be.  The range of afternoon temperatures will be from the mid 70s to near 80F, then an abrupt drop to the 60s (lows in the 40s) this weekend.  That transition will have enough energy to produce thunderstorms, and there is a marginal risk that one or a few turn severe. Here is a quick look at the simulated radar to show the timeline.  Below, a look at the temperatures to follow.

Note: We are still in for great weather for the Ravens game, just chilly for early tailgaters.

If you are seeing this early (before 7:15 AM), here is another look at the moon and planetary conjunction in the eastern sky. Where to look and what you might see.

Simulated Radar

Note: There will be some showers west and north during lunch time. I started the focus here with the main line of storms mid afternoon.
