Friday April 10 2020

After a chilly and windy afternoon, the sky should clear as the winds ease. This will allow the temperatures to drop overnight quite a bit, especially inland away from the urban areas and water of the Bay.  For a few hours, temperatures below 32ºF can damage new plants and cause hoses to burst if the water inside freezes.

Freeze Warning

A Freeze Warning is in place for the normally colder inland counties west and north of Washington DC and Baltimore. This includes counties in Virginia, Maryland (even Cecil made the cut), and Southern Pennsylvania.

Recommendations are to disconnect your garden hose, bring in potted plants, and cover new plantings with tart or insulation.


How Cold Will It Get?

Here’s a look at two model forecast maps for Saturday Morning.

It is possible for areas in the mid and upper 30s to get frost. But this depends on the wind speeds. They should remain a little gusty overnight. Then settle to between 5 and 10 mph by daybreak.

Weekend Warm Up

The recovery to the mid 50s in the afternoon will feel better with sun and lighter winds.  Sunday will be even warmer, but clouds will thicken up taking away the full potential for a nice Easter afternoon.
