Tuesday December 11 2018

This may seem like a tease, but the cold air in place has one chance to produce snow this week. Thursday morning will bring some light snow across the northern part of our area. This may skim metro Baltimore, but northern areas into southern PA could have a minor impact. Then a shift of the upper air pattern will bring in the next system with warmer air and rain on Friday. Despite this, I still see us back to the cold and a chance for snow before Christmas.

Snow Day Kit

Our ritual the night before a storm is finally in one kit. Maybe if more Maryland kids had this, the storm would reach us 🙂

  • This includes a very soft raglan Tee printed inside out with #FITF AND the check list,  #FITF spoon for under your pillow, ice cube tray with snowflake shapes, chalk, a #FITF wrist-band, a mini SnowStix, and a bag to carry it all in.
  • Order by December 14 and it should arrive for the holiday.
  • This will also help us give a free Snow Day Kit to each of the Just In Power Kids.



Morning Snapshot

Bitterly cold and thick frost for most this morning.


Afternoon Highs

Slow thaw, but there will be plenty of sunshine to help.


Thursday Morning Light Snow — > slider

  • This looks like a minor impact northwest of Baltimore that may include parts of Howard, Frederick, Carroll, northern Baltimore, and Harford Counties. Better chance for some impact on the roads before school in southern PA.
  • Watch the Freezing Line for where there may be stickage.
  • This needs a closer look and I will post that this afternoon.
