Sunday September 23 2018

Lat night was the Autumnal Equinox and we are officially in the Fall Season now.  It seems like the past few seasons began wet and this is just following the trend. We are on the cold side of a stationary front with a push of Low Pressure sending in rain today. The rain is arriving from the southwest, but the surface winds are from the northeast. This is why we are so chilly and may struggle to move out of the lower 60s.

The rain today should be heavier south of Baltimore, but we all stay damp. Below is a look at the morning radar and simulation through the day.  The forecast for the upcoming week shows more rain Monday and then a shift to showers mid week, meaning dry hours at time.  The pattern should break for us late Friday and next weekend should be better.

Surface Weather

This is the front staled just to our south. We are on the cooler side and the heavier rain will be closer to the front south of Baltimore.

Looking Ahead….

The front will try to move north Monday with another batch of steady rain.  As it moves north, we will get into warmer air and break the steady rain into showers Tuesday. The timing of the next front will determine if we can break this pattern Thursday or Friday… But next weekend is looking much better.
