Tuesday November 20 2018
A few showers moved through this morning that may help the air quality, but will make the beginning of the cold air intrusion. Snow showers will prevail in western Maryland for the day. Region-wide, a legitimate winter pattern is building for Thanksgiving that will make it feel more like Christmas. If you and your family have plans for a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, you will want to dig out the winter clothing. It is going to be brutally cold and might be a shock to your system.
Over the holiday weekend we expect a warm up with rain on Saturday. The following week does continue to show the pattern shifting back to cold air and looking stormy into December. Here is the latest.

Temperatures Trending Colder
These are morning temps, but the afternoon is likely to remain below freezing.
Holiday Weekend Weather
Rain Saturday ends Sunday morning.
The next storm will be Monday Nov 26, with rain, that will mark the pattern change … Watch the snow expand to our north.
Long Range Outlook
The NAO will remain negative. While this outlook only takes us through the end of November, the trend will drop lower into the start of December.
Early December Will Be Stormy
The phasing event for early December has been a consistent showing.. But I will NOT lock in on rain or snow. The surface features are less accurate to call now. But, we can see another southern California storm that will track across the southern US to follow this one with even colder air in place.
