Saturday November 24 2018

A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for many inland areas until noon, but the rain appears to be more of an impact in the mountains this morning. Temperatures are rising but the cold ground is the main reason for the concern. I think the arrival of the rain wil be late enough for many areas to thaw.  The bigger issue will be the heavy rain this afternoon. Below is a look at the radar simulation.

Small Business Saturday

I do run a small business. In fact, I am partners in another, so essentially I am part of two. Faith in the Flakes products employs a small business in Carroll County, where the Maryland Print House makes my products. SnowStix is run with my partners Thatcher and Melita Brinton in Timonium. Today would be a great day to get your holiday gifts and support my local partnerships with other small businesses. Check out our products for the snow lover on your list.

A portion of proceeds as always will support Just In Power Kids– Free Holiday Care For Kids in cancer treatment

Temperature Outlook

We will have another cold snap next week, followed by a warm up at the end of next weekend. This surge of warm December air is a precursor to the next push of winter… Keep watching for the first week of December for the dramatic change.


Extended Outlook

The NAO appears to be rising, but will crash again during the first week of December. The period after December 5 appears to be the timer frame to watch. Multiple storms are expected in the east and eventually the cold air will catch up in time.
