Saturday May 2 2020

We finally have a nice and sunny day, but it will stand on its own. This weekend will feature temperatures reaching near 70ºF today and into the 70s tomorrow, but Sunday appears to be more wet that earlier thought. One band of rain in the morning, then more showers in the evening with some thunderstorms at night. This will mark the pattern change to reestablish cooler air through next week.

With sunshine and a mix of high clouds, this should be a great set up for the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds AmericaStrong Baltimore flyover later this morning.

Morning Weather


Blue Angels and Thunderbirds:

The 15 minute flyover Central Maryland starts by Rock Hall, ends at BWI. This will be a series of loops mainly around Baltimore.

Temperatures Today

The afternoon will reach close to 70 degrees in many areas. My wife asks what that means for clothing, so in that terms: Shorts with a long sleeve shirt and layer with a light jacket, or hoodie to take off later.


Temperatures Sunday

Let’s focus on the warmth before seeing the rain.

You still may want to pause the planting until after Mother’s Day, especially if you live in the colder inland areas.
