Friday December 14 2018
The last time we had recorded rain in Baltimore was December 2, but that dry stretch is about to end. At least we know the drill… Many times we have had rain move in on a Friday then return heavy and last most of the weekend. That is what we have on the way later today. It will be heavy at times and yes, showers will linger on Sunday that could still pass over the Ravens game.
Dense Fog Advisory and Flood Watch
As the moisture moves in, fog has developed with some school delays on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
A Flood Watch for central Maryland and most of Virginia.
*I expect this should expand to PA and Delmarva as most of the area should get between 1 and 2 inches with some pushing the 3 inch mark by Sunday.
Temperatures and Visibility…
The foggy areas are spread out.
- Lower Eastern Shore visibility is near Zero!
- Other foggy areas include central and northern Maryland up into Pennsylvania between Harrisburg and Lancaster
Storm Set Up
The Low is located in Texas and will be heading our way, but wait until you see the satellite loop…
This water vapor loop shows the impressive circulation with the very strong Low Pressure that is stacked from the surface to the upper atmosphere.

Adding To The Record Wet Year
Rain Friday –> slider
Rain Saturday –> slider
With the upper low passing over Maryland, the core of this system will still have some rain and instability with it.
A band of heavier rain is likely to wrap around the edge of the upper Low, but underneath there will be showers and lighter rain lasting through the afternoon.
There will be some cool down… But the Pre Christmas outlook appears to be near average
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
