Wednesday January 23 2019

It is still cold this morning, but the storm on the way will be pushing in warmer air just in time for rain. Temperatures today will continue to warm up through midnight and even into Thursday morning. This will come with rain that will be so heavy Thursday morning, a Flood Watch has been issued for our central region. Included in this event might be a band of thunderstorms.

Below is a quick look at the temperatures and rain timeline. There may be some sleet at the start with some stray early showers, but the wintry weather will be north of Harrisburg. Once again, colder air will follow this storm. There are a few chances for snow next week, but I would hold off on declaring any events or labeling a storm at this time.

Anniversary: Today marks the largest snowstorm of all time in Baltimore. The calendar date had 25.5 inches of snow at BWI. I will have a look back posted during the day.

Winter is still here and has more to give us. Our luck is likely to change. FITF

We will be dominated by cold air (blue) pattens into February. There will be plenty of supply, but like above, no guarantee of storms at this time. I expect it will be active and worth watching for our winter prime time show.
