Thursday December 13 2018
Just a few days ago it looked like we may have some snow showers this morning. That has fallen under the some trend as that last storm and shifted to the north. No worries locally this morning, but snow is pushing through northern PA and central New York as warmer air is moving in for us. Then we shift our focus to rain form the south that will reach us Friday afternoon and could be heavy by at night and Saturday morning. This will add to our record wet year, only to be followed by colder air after it passes.
If you are holding out for snow, we will have some Lake Effect showers try to reach us on Monday. Beyond that the long range pattern looks more promising Christmas week.

Monday Snow Showers?
The GFS Model does cut the snow back to the mountains, but there is a lot of upper air support to carry them into central Maryland.
Long Range Outlook
The next batch of cold air to hold in place may be Christmas Week. I do not look at specific numbers that far out. The trend turning colder and below average is the important take away… It will be colder for the holiday week.
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.
FITF and SnowStix Stores are now OPEN
