Thursday January 24 2019

We have a very energetic storm passing through this morning. Winds are already whipping up, but expect them to get stronger over the next few hours. This is a legitimately serious concern as we just went from a hard freeze, the thawed with heavy rain. There is a Flood Watch in our area for an additional 1 inch or more rain today. Winds will gust between 50 and 60 mph which can soften the soil to knock down some trees. There will also be branches break and other debris that can take out power lines.

Other travel concerns are: Restrictions on area bridges and flight delays

  • Wind Advisory: Until noon for most of the area. Metro Baltimore has been extended until 6 PM
  • Flood Watch overlaps with the wind advisory over central Maryland.

These downpours may be blinding at times. It’s best to pull over and wait it out if you are driving.

Western MD gets a snow burst, but that will be confined to the mountains.

 

Temperatures

The energy will come from the temperature contrast. Baltimore shoots for the lower 60s before noon, then falls fast through the 40s after noon.
