October 1 2018
It may sound hard to believe, but after a dry weekend with some of the best weather in months, we start October with a warm trend. We may have some thunderstorms Tuesday evening and towards the weekend. But overall the pattern has us warm and mostly dry for the next two weeks. Below is a look at the spread of extreme weather we can get during this month in Baltimore. There is nothing a hint of late summer and early winter.
This may be something for everyone. We get a chance to dry out the soil and perhaps a bone tossed for those that want a snowy winter. I did a little research on wet summers and one thing stood out with relation to how much snow we can get in the following winter. We had over 9 inches of rain in September which puts us close to an average fall. The rest of the season needs a drying trend to increase the likelihood of a snowy winter. Here is the breakdown:
