Tuesday January 8 2019
Rain and icy mix overnight was followed by a thaw as expected. Only a few spots in the mountains remain cooler, but the day will be met with warmer winds as we aim for the 50s. Tonight a cold front will bring some showers ahead of colder air while western Maryland will get a few inches of fresh snow. If you are a skier or snowboarder concerned for the season, snowmaking looks likely for all local mountains this week. The weekend storm still looks promising for real snow into metro areas.

I’d like to welcome Buchanan Kia of Westminster: Now a supporter of Just In Power Kids and Maryland Trek 6 in August 2019. Soon we will be showing you why we developed this relationship with a local business that my wife and I sincerely trust.
Warm But Breezy Afternoon
A cold front will bring showers by midnight along with a shift to colder winds. The snow in the mountains will last into Wednesday and add up a few fresh inches for the ski resorts
Winds will be gusting between 25 and 35 mph for much of the area. This will make it feel colder.
Temperatures and Wind Chills
The prospects for a storm this weekend to bring us snow is still with us. First, here is a look at the latest Canadian GEM Model. This has been the most aggressive with the strongest storm. But along with the FV3-GFS model (below) we get the impression that light snow may begin Saturday afternoon or at night. But the agreement is the duration on Sunday. See the animation below.
It is still too early to make any call for snowfall totals. Given the weekend event timing, a realistic idea of how much snow would be first seen Wednesday night.
Animation: Saturday night through Monday morning
Animation FV3- GFS: Saturday afternoon through Monday morning
After today, the trend will be colder through the weekend. We may bottom out with highs in the 20s through Baltimore on Saturday.
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.
- The introduction special price will end tonight.
- 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
