Friday November 9 2018

Today will be yet another wet Friday and we already have showers this morning. The start did produce some sleet in northern Maryland, but it will be just wet today. Widespread snow and a look of winter is dominating the national radar this morning. That will stay well to our west, but the complex is going to make the second have of our day ore active.

After a late morning break, there will be heavier rain moving in this afternoon between 3 and 8 PM. Strong storms with heavy downpours might be hard hitting across southern Maryland and Delmarva between 5 PM and 9 PM. Then very cold air will move in and you will definitely get the feel of winter this weekend.  The next storm will bring rain Tuesday with another coastal storm that could bring wet snow across central Maryland as it ends.
