Thursday March 29 2018

Dense Fog across the area this morning is a signal that the chilly damp air is trying to get pushed out. Visibility is under 0.25 mile in pockets west and north of Baltimore into Southern PA. Also around The Bay Bridge and Kent Island. The fog is often a precursor to a warm front, but so could be some rain. The high resolution model is showing a band of rain this morning that will be north by noon and allow for the warm air to surge in for the Orioles Opening Day. So wear a jacket, but a t-shirt underneath for later.

A cold front will arrive Friday morning with a chance of early day thunder, then we trend colder.  If you heard any rumors about snow next week, the  same models that showed it have lost it.  But Monday will be chilly again.

EXTREME Weather History: Today is the anniversary of one of Baltimore’s biggest snow storms. In 1942, the Palm Sunday Storm dropped 21.9″ of snow making that the top March event and number 7 on record. It is also the anniversary of the hottest March day, 90ºF in 1945.  Just 3 years after that snow storm. Imagine what they were thinking about weather patterns and the abrupt change back then…
