November 4 2018

Today will be a sunny Sunday and a nice break between the severe storms that passed and another round on the way. Nice weather timed out great for the Bay Bridge 10K and the Ravens game against the Steelers. The benefit of sunshine today may also highlight the return to Standard Time with sunset just after 5 PM.  Then we have an abrupt change back to rain Monday morning and a risk for severe storms on Tuesday Election Day.

Morning Snapshot

High Pressure will provide us with a Sunny Sunday. But the complex storm to our west will bring strong and severe storms across the central US and into the Ohio Valley. A second piece of energy on the south side will ride a path similar to Hurricane Michael and our last Nor’easter to reaffirm the atmospheric memory. This is something to watch for how it behaves here and potential future winter storm tracks.
